Human remains have been found at a property in rural NSW in the police search for the bodies of Sydney couple, Jesse Baird and Luke Davies. 

The remains were found at Bungonia near Goulburn, around 185 kilometres south of Sydney at around 1pm on Tuesday. 

“We are very confident that we have located Luke and Jesse,” said Commissioner Karen Webb in a press conference on Tuesday afternoon.

“I’d like to pass on my condolences to the Davies and Baird families.”

Detective Superintendent Danny Doherty said that “arrangements have been made for the family to travel down to the Goulburn area and we’ll provide that ongoing support as we need to”.

NSW Senior Constable Beau Lamarre-Condon, who was charged with the murders of Baird and Davies, pointed the investigation team to the location of their bodies.

The remains were found around 20 minutes away from the rural property in Bungonia that was originally the focus of police investigations on Sunday and Monday. The police said they located two surf bags, which were used to transport the bodies from Baird’s Paddington home, and it was covered with debris.

“Investigators established a crime scene at a second property at Bungonia, this afternoon,” a NSW Police spokesperson said in a statement earlier in the afternoon.
