It could take “considerable time” to identify human remains discovered on a Busselton beach last week, according to police.

Local detectives are leading the investigation, and are still working to determine the cause of death and identity of the deceased. Officers were called to the scene at 8.45am on December 12 when a passer-by sighted human remains in the dunes on Geographe Bay Road.

A section of beach and road, from King Street to the CBD, was closed off due to the discovery.

Investigators worked into the evening in the area, which is just east of the Geographe Bay Yacht Club, and situated on a popular dog beach.

More than a week after the discovery, a police spokeswoman said there was no new information to provide to the public.

“Investigators are continuing their inquiries in relation to the deceased and the circumstances of their death, which can take considerable time,” she said.

Police would like to speak to anyone with information in relation to the death.
