Girl, seven, feared taken by crocodile in Australia

- +

Australian police searching for a 7-year-old girl feared taken by a crocodile said finding what appeared to be human remains inside a three-metre reptile was a "heartbreaking" development. 

An saltwater crocodile lies in the sun on the banks of the Adelaide river near Darwin in Australia's Northern Territory in 2008. Australian authorities were Saturday searching waterways in a remote part of the country's Northern Territory for any sign of a seven-year-old girl feared taken by a crocodile, police said.

An extensive search began at first light for the girl who was last seen swimming at the natural pool at an outstation about 340 kilometres (210 miles) east of the city of Darwin on Friday afternoon.
