Police are ending their search for a crocodile thought to have killed a New Zealand woman in far north Queensland.

46-year-old Cindy Waldron was seized as she waded in the ocean at Thornton Beach in the Daintree region, north of Cairns, on Sunday.

A 2.5m crocodile was trapped in the area, but authorities don't believe it's the reptile responsible for the attack.
