An Aboriginal elder says it was "a gut feeling" that led her to find the torso of an adult during her search for missing six-year-old Kiesha Abrahams.
Cheryl Carroll-Lagerway found the body part on a creek bank at Nurragingy Reserve in the Sydney suburb of Doonside on Wednesday night.
Ms Carroll-Lagerway, who claims to have psychic powers, was searching the area on a hunch that she would find the body of Kiesha.
She instead found an adult torso wrapped in plastic, which police believe could be that of mother Kristi McDougall who went missing two months ago.
"I've had a feeling to go there all time," Ms Carroll-Lagerway told Nine News.
"It's just my feeling ... so I went with my gut feeling."
Police have contacted relatives of Ms McDougall to warn them, although the identity of the torso is still to be confirmed.
Ms McDougall, the mother of a two-year-old boy, was last seen in Homebush and had told friends she was on her way to the Ermington area in the city's west.
Detective Chief Inspector Pamela Young from the State Crime Command Homicide Squad said police were investigating the circumstances that led Ms Carroll-Lagerway to find the torso.
"Well, it's quite interesting that there's a woman and she had a sense or feeling it was worth her while to come to this particular part of the park," she said.
"We're still exploring that — it's certainly an interesting proposition of hers."
Police cordoned off the track leading to the creek in the reserve while divers, police officers and police dogs searched the creek and surrounding area for more body parts.
