Charlise had been staying with her mother during the school holidays.
Her mother is now in hospital after suffering a medical episode after reporting the girl missing.
Acting Commissioner Webb said the police investigation would continue.
“There is still a lot to determine… it’s now in the hands of the coroner, cause of death and a number of other lines of inquiry,” she said.
“The search will remain ongoing to look for any clues to help us identify the cause of the death.”
She urged anybody with information to come forward.
“There are still many elements of this investigation that we have to work through to determine exactly what happened from the time the young girl was reported missing up until last night when those remains were found,” Acting Commissioner Webb said.
