Police have broadened their search of beaches on the NSW South Coast in an attempt to find further human remains linked to Sydney businesswoman Melissa Caddick.

Officers, along with SES personnel, continue to scour the coastline around popular tourist destination Mollymook, where human remains were found on Friday night.

Police confirmed searches are also being conducted further south today at Tathra, and around 30 kilometres north of Mollymook at Cunjarong Point, near Bendalong.

Police are still waiting on the results of a DNA test to confirm whether human remains that washed up at Mollymook belong to Ms Caddick.

“I feel like my ancestry is the story of America”

  “I feel like my ancestry is the story of America” 3 Black Americans who unlocked personal history using DNA testing and online historical databases.What Baldwin spoke to is a reality for so many Black Americans. Deeply connecting to that personal history, and understanding where we and our families fit into it, has proven to be challenging or even impossible. Centuries of enslavement, criminalization, and inequality created the conditions where ties to Africa were intentionally severed and records about Black people were seldom kept.

It is exactly one week since Ms Caddick's "badly decomposed foot" and ASICS sneaker were found by campers at Bournda Beach, near Tathra, 250 kilometres south of Mollymook.

It took five days for DNA results from Ms Caddick's foot to come back and it is understood a similar timeframe is expected for the latest remains.

Ms Caddick had been missing since November 12, when she left her Dover Heights home in Sydney's eastern suburbs, telling her husband she was going for an early morning run.

Before her disappearance, Ms Caddick's home had been raided by ASIC officials, as part of investigations into her financial services company, Maliver.

NSW Police Assistant Commissioner Mick Willing has said the foot and shoe discovered on the beach matched the size and description of a shoe Ms Caddick was wearing during the ASIC raid.

Bryce, 31, held his head in his hands as he dined at a restaurant with Melissa, also 31, and it was clear they were having a tense exchange.Melissa appeared drawn and irritated as she sat opposite the former radio host.Later on, the couple looked anything but loved-up as they left the restaurant.

DNA from the foot was also matched to a DNA sample taken from her toothbrush and from family members.

Assistant Commissioner Willing said police modelling of current drifts and waves showed it was possible Ms Caddick entered the water from near her clifftop home and her body drifted several hundred kilometres south.

Last week, ASIC said it would continue to investigate Ms Caddick's company, despite confirmation of her death.

The corporate watchdog alleged Ms Caddick misappropriated investor funds through Maliver, and operated without a licence.

ASIC has previously revealed in court that investors handed over more than $13 million, however, a law firm acting for some of the investors believed the true total could be $20 million or more.

It says its priority is to return funds to investors "in the most efficient way possible".

Multiracial bands that made history .
These days, a multiracial band is no big deal. In fact, it's quite normal to applaud music made by a racially mixed act. But there was a time when it was rare to see white musicians performing alongside those of color. Fortunately, music has always been a great leveler, and as early as the 1940s there were those who refused to let racial prejudice stand in the way of a good tune. Click through the following gallery and be reminded of the bands that helped harmonize the music scene.
