Homicide detectives are investigating the death of a woman, whose badly injured body was found in remote bushland in Sydney's south.

A member of the public was walking on a fire trail at Sandy Point Quarry and found the partially-clothed body late yesterday afternoon.

NSW Police have set up a command post on Heathcote Road at Menai, with riot and forensic officers combing bushland for clues.

The woman has now been formally identified as 33-year-old Najma Carroll.

She was most recently known to reside in Sydney’s inner-west.

Investigators are trying to determine whether her body was dumped at the scene or if she died in the quarry.

Officers are appealing to the public for help, particularly if a loved one or family member is missing.

The area where police are searching is near the Georges River and about a 10-minute drive from Wattle Grove Shopping Centre.

Police will hold a news conference later this afternoon.
