A cap and goggles belonging to a 63-year-old woman presumed to have been “taken” by a large shark while swimming off the coast of Australia have been found, along with human remains, police said Friday.
The search for Christine Armstrong was ongoing Friday morning, New South Wales Police said in a statement.
Armstrong was swimming Thursday with a group of friends off a beach in Tathra in New South Wales when she complained and headed back to shore, Police Inspector Jason Edmunds said.
The rest of the group, including her husband, later saw a shark, estimated to be about 11 feet long, swimming near them, causing them to bunch together for safety.
They swam back to the beach club, but found no trace that Armstrong made it back.
