Police will continue combing a remote property in northern NSW in their search for the body of missing father Greg Dufty.

The 37-year-old was last seen last July on the Gold Coast and police allege he was killed by a group of men over a drug debt.

Police believe Mr Dufty's body is somewhere on a 162ha property about 30km southeast of Casino, near the Royal Camp State Forest.

The search began today and a large tarpaulin could be seen draped over one part of the property.

The development came a day after New Zealander Clinton Stockman appeared in court charged with being an accessory to Mr Dufty's murder.

Police allege Stockman, 28, helped the three men accused of killing Mr Dufty dispose of his body.

Another New Zealand national, Aaron Crawford, has been charged with murder along with Lionel Patea and Liam Bliss.
