More remains have been washed up on a beach after police confirmed on Friday alleged Sydney conwoman Melissa Caddick’s decomposed foot had been found.

There have been several sightings of flesh and bones along the NSW South Coast — the latest of which was seen at Warrain Beach near Culburra by a passer-by on Sunday and reported to police, a NSW Police spokesperson told Yahoo News Australia.

The Daily Telegraph has reported that the remains are believed to be human flesh.

On Friday, six days after Ms Caddick's decaying foot washed up, members of the public discovered a chunk of stomach flesh at Mollymook and called police.

Police also received call-outs to two other South Coast beaches on Saturday evening, after bones were found at both. Members of the public found the remains at Tura Beach and Cunjurong Point.

The bones found at Tura Beach have since been revealed to have come from an animal.

All of the other remains have been sent off for testing to confirm if they are human, the NSW Police spokesperson said.

Police continue to search for more remains in the locations the grisly discoveries have been made, she said.

Ms Caddick vanished the day after corporate watchdog ASIC executed a search warrant at her luxury Dover Heights home on November 11.

Liquidators say the self-styled financial adviser "meticulously and systematically" deceived those who entrusted millions of investment dollars to her over seven years, then used the money to fund her lavish lifestyle.

Assistant Commissioner Mick Willing said on Friday foul play against Ms Caddick was possible but suicide was more likely.

Police are also investigating the possibility the remains could belong to a missing snorkeller who was last seen entering the water at Richmond Beach in the Murramarang National Park, north of Batemans Bay, on January 25.

The man's children were at the beach with him at the time but his pregnant wife had stayed at home.

New police theory about Melissa Caddick before her death

The news comes after police told The Daily Telegraph that Ms Caddick may have been alive for weeks after she disappeared from her Sydney mansion.

They said it is unlikely her body could have drifted to the NSW South Coast, while the foot had not shown signs of being in water for a long period of time.

“Something in the water for that long, say a bit of flotsam or jetsam that washes onto the shore, has got green growth on it,” Superintendent Joe McNulty, Commander of the NSW Marine Command, told the publication.

“At first examination the shoe doesn’t appear to have been in the water for three months. The shoe needs extensive analysis to see how long it was in the water. It’s a vital clue where hopefully marine biology can provide some answers.

"[A body drifting that far has] never happened in my time in the water police."
