SYDNEY (AFP) - The swimming cap and goggles of a woman taken by a shark in Australia have been found, police said on Friday, as her husband accepted that she had been "consumed completely".

Ms Christine Armstrong, 63, was with a group of people on their regular morning swim between Tathra Wharf and Tathra Beach about 350 kilometres south of Sydney on Thursday when she disappeared.

Her husband Rob and others in the group said they saw a shark close by.

"A cap and goggles, belonging to a woman who was taken by a shark on the state's far south coast yesterday have been located," New South Wales police said.
