Police recovered the remains about 8km along Farewell Spit after the discovery yesterday.

They were keeping an open mind as to who the person may be but have contacted the family of Dutch tourist Ken Boogers, who went missing in Golden Bay on 21 March.

A post mortem and DNA testing will be carried out to establish the identity of the remains, which is expected to take a few weeks.
