Two men have been charged with the alleged murder of Sunshine Coast woman, Donna Howe, after a body was found in remote bushland on the Glass House Mountains this week.

Police confirmed human remains had been found on a track at the popular tourist and hiking site by two four-wheel-drivers Tuesday afternoon.

The body was badly decomposed and sent for forensic examination and identification.

Investigators initially said there appeared to be char marks on the bones but this could be due to decomposition.

It was unclear whether the body was a man or a woman.

Police now believe the remains belong to 57-year-old Howe, from Caboolture.

She was last seen in April by her family.

Further investigations led police to search a Balkee Drive address where the two men were arrested.

It's believed the 41-year-old and 31-year-old, both from Caboolture, knew Howe.

They have each been charged with one count of murder and interfering with a corpse.

Both men will appear in Caboolture Magistrate's Court today.
