NSW Police have confirmed parts of a human torso which washed ashore at a South Coast beach on Friday do not belong to Sydney businesswoman Melissa Caddick.

Police said the remains found at Mollymook belong to a man.

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.

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

NSW Police said the remains found on Friday did not belong to Ms Caddick or a 39-year-old man missing from the Batemans Bay area since January 25.

"The DNA profile will be compared against the missing persons database, which contains the hereditary and genetic mapping of long-term missing people in NSW," NSW Police said.

"Further inquiries will be conducted by South Coast Police District and the Missing Person’s Registry."

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

On Sunday morning, a third set of remains washed up at Warrain Beach in Culburra.

"All remains will undergo forensic examination to determine if they are human or animal," NSW Police said yesterday.

"If a member of the public locates remains, they are urged to leave the item in situ and contact local police in the first instance."

Police said 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.

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.
