Police have found the remains of an elderly woman who disappeared four years ago in a Sydney wildflower garden.

Gaida Coote, 84, was last seen on December 3, 2014, at Ku-ring-gai Wildflower Garden on the North Shore, where she volunteered with a plant regeneration group.

An extensive search was launched when her car remained in the car park two days later.

Local police, the Police Rescue Unit, the Police Dog Unit, the police airwing PolAir, Mounted Police, National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) as well as volunteers from the State Emergency Service (SES) and Rural fire Service (RFS) failed to find her.

Skeletal remains found 150m off a trail by bushwalkers in the garden on Friday belong to Mrs Coote, investigators confirmed this morning.

A bag containing gardening tools was also discovered by police.

A report will be prepared for the NSW Coroner.
