Police have discovered what appears to be human remains linked to their investigation into the disappearance of Ju 'Kelly' Zhang.
Detectives began searching a landfill on Bridge Inn Road at Wollert in Melbourne's outer north on June 15.
They found human remains about 2pm on Friday, which are yet to be formally identified.
The coroner has been advised and post-mortem exam will be conducted.
Ms Zhang was last seen at her home on Winchester Avenue in Epping about 5.30pm on February 1.
When she went missing, the 33-year-old was believed to have been wearing a pink nightgown and pink slippers.
A 35-year-old Doncaster man has been charged with her murder.
Assistant Commissioner Bob Hill said officers had worked hard to provide answers to Ms Zhang's family and friends.
"We know this has been an incredibly difficult and traumatic time for them," he said.
"We hope that this will bring the closure they need and Ju can finally be laid to rest".
Anyone with information about Ms Zhang's disappearance is urged to contact Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.
