Police remained tight lipped about a search in bushland at South Nowra earlier this month over the suspicious disappearance of Sydney woman Samah Baker.
Investigators located and removed several items of interest during a search of bushland south of Nowra in the Warra Warra Road area.
Officers from Strike Force Boutcher, investigating the suspicious disappearance of 30-year-old Ms Baker, spent two days scouring bushland on the eastern side of the Princes Highway.
Police remained tight lipped about what exactly the recovered items were, however have confirmed a number of items were undergoing forensic examination to see if they are relevant to the ongoing investigation.
Police confirmed the Shoalhaven search was not for Ms Baker's body but officers were instead looking for any possible evidence or any of her possessions.
Police have also had items found south of Goulburn, another search area the investigating strike force examined, sent for forensic testing.
During the investigation, detectives charged a 32-year-old James Hachem with murder, despite Ms Baker's body still not being found.
Police say investigations under Strike Force Boutcher, which include inquiries to locate Samah Baker's body, continue.
Anyone with information that may assist Strike Force Boutcher investigators is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au.
