The questions started coming soon after the grim find on a beach near the small seaside town of Anglesea: is it her?

Ever since 43-year-old Elisa Curry vanished on grand final night from her family's holiday home in nearby Aireys Inlet, the mystery has been the talk of the neighbouring Surf Coast towns.

Body washes up on Anglesea Beach

When search parties failed to turn up any sign of Ms Curry by land, sea and air, speculation grew.

On Wednesday morning, a woman walking her dog on the beach stumbled across human remains that may be the crucial piece in the puzzle.

Police would not comment on whether the remains were related to Ms Curry's disappearance and were waiting on an autopsy.

O'Donohue's Beach, the rough strip of coast where the body was found, is about seven kilometres across the water north-west of Aireys Inlet. The famous Split Point lighthouse can be seen from the beach. Sharks have been spotted in the area.

The back beach is isolated from the main part of town, drawing just a few walkers and their dogs as the surf is too rough for swimming. A few surfers braved the swell as police helicopters hovered overhead.

For most of the year, Point Roadknight, a tiny seaside hamlet between Anglesea and Aireys Inlet, is almost deserted. All that overlooks O'Donohue's Beach are sandy cliffs covered in winds wept shrubs.

There are no shops to speak of: just a beach kiosk that opens in the warmer months, and the motor yacht club facing the concrete boat ramp where fishermen congregate is probably the busiest spot in town.

As many as two-thirds of the properties are empty most of the time. Most are holiday homes. Of those who live there permanently, many appear to be elderly or retirees.

Hordes of holidaymakers crowd the sheltered front beach in summer, parking over the driveways of nearby houses.

Most of the holiday houses were again occupied during grand final weekend and the school holidays.

Police moved quickly on Wednesday, reopening O'Donohue's Beach a few hours after the discovery was made. Police jetskis continued the search along the coast looking for any other clues that may have washed up.

All that could be seen of their work as the rain closed in on Wednesday afternoon were footprints. Then the tide washed those away too.
