A body found near a campground where 53-year-old Judith Williams went missing on October 19 could be the remains of the missing woman, police say.

A report will be prepared for the Coroner over the discovery of  human remains on the property at Gradys Creek, about 25km north of Kyogle.

About 6pm yesterday (November 19), police were called to the property on Simes Road following reports that human remains had been discovered by the landowner.

Police established a crime scene and placed a guard on the scene overnight, with further examination of the area to be conducted today.

Ms Williams, of Corakai, went camping in the vicinity with her husband and was not seen again after leaving the caravan where she was sleeping in the middle of the night to go to the nearby toilet block.

An extensive aerial and ground search of the area failed to find her.

The remains will be sent for forensic analysis and investigations into the matter are continuing.

Police are urging anyone with information about this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://www1.police.nsw.gov.au/.
