FACEBOOK posts, a yellow car and an empty designer home where a body was found on the weekend are at the centre of an investigation into the murder of missing Melbourne woman Sarah Cafferkey.

Homicide detectives investigating the 22-year-old's disappearance discovered a young woman's body during a raid of a Point Cook home on Saturday.

While the identity of the body has not yet been confirmed, police believed it was Sarah, who was last seen by her mother at her home in Bacchus March on November 9.

Police were also tracking a suspect and had seized a stripped down yellow Commodore, not believed to be owned by the suspect, close to Sarah's home.

Frozen images from Sarah's Facebook page have been examined by police and are believed to form a critical part of the investigation.

Neighbours in the estate where the body was found told two men had lived in the home but no-one had been seen there for more than a week.
