Australian police are examining human remains found in a crocodile to see if they match the DNA of a missing man.

The 62-year-old man was snatched from his boat in the Kakadu National Park, in the Northern Territory.

The 4.7m-long (15.4ft) reptile was one of two shot by park rangers near the scene of the attack.

The man's wife, son and daughter-in-law were reported to have been with him on the South Alligator River when he disappeared on Saturday.

"The human remains have been taken for examination," Sgt Andrew Hocking said.

"There are a number of statements to be taken from witnesses and a file will be prepared for the coroner."

Experts said that it was unusual for a crocodile to attack during this time of year when Australia experiences cooler weather.
