Tracey Marshall, went missing in Karratha as a cyclone hit the area.

The remains have been found of a woman who went missing three years ago in Karratha just before the area was hit by a cyclone.

Tracey Margaret Marshall, 35, went missing from the Nickol Bay Hospital on February 21, 2011.

Within a day of her disappearance a red alert for a Cyclone Carlos was issued and a cyclone hit the area.

Three days later, Mrs Marshall's car was found abandoned about 45km south of Karratha on the Karratha/Tom Price Road.

A land search failed to find her.

In February this year the State Coroner ruled that Mrs Marshall had died.

On May 18, human remains were found below a transmission line pylon near where Ms Marshall's car was abandoned in 2011.

The remains have been positively identified as Mrs Marshall and her family has been notified.

A former high school teacher, Mrs Marshall moved to Karratha from Dalwallinu with her husband Iain Marshall in 2008.
