Analysis using DNA from Ms Caddick’s toothbrush matched the foot, found within a shoe at Bournda National Park near Tathra, on Sunday.

Offshore drift modelling found that a body which entered the water near Ms Caddick’s home in Dover Heights in Sydney may have drifted to the South Coast over time.

Assistant Commissioner Michael Willing said the foot was in a state of decomposition after being in the water for “some time”.

“It remains a mystery as to when and how she came into the water,” he said.

Ms Caddick disappeared on November 12 last year after leaving her home for what her husband believed was a morning run at 5.30am.

She and her family lived in affluent Dover Heights in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) raided her home as part of an ASIC investigation just days before she disappeared.

Further investigations have found neither Ms Caddick nor her business held a current AFS licence, required under Australian law to provide financial services.

Instead of investing funds from investors, Ms Caddick allegedly transferred money from the business into her personal accounts.
