Human remains have been found in Kalbarri in Western Australia's Mid West, where police are searching for a missing kite surfer.

WA Police on Thursday said the remains were being forensically examined to determine whether they were linked to the missing man, who is aged in his 70s.

An aerial and marine search was launched for the man on Wednesday after he got into difficulty near the mouth of the Murchison River.

"Search activity in the area is continuing, pending the results of the forensic examination," WA Police said in a statement.

The man's family has been advised of the discovery.
