Human remains discovered in the Murray River near a popular swimming area are said to be those of a Nepalese college student who disappeared eight months ago while swimming with friends.

Researchers were called to a boat ramp near Kremur Street in Albury, southern New South Wales, on Thursday at 4.40 pm after a fisherman saw a body lying in the water.

The police issued a statement that there was a & # 39; good possibility & # 39; was that the remains belonged to the 21-year-old student Bigul Pandit, who went missing in January this year in the Murray River in West Albury.

Inspector Winston Woodward also said that Pandit's family had been notified.

& # 39; I am hopeful, but at the same time I am sad that it could be Mr Pandit, & # 39; he said according to ABC.

& # 39; It will bring a little closure to the family, but it is clearly a loved one who has died. & # 39;
