POLICE have arrested the boyfriend of murdered NSW woman Carly McBride over her death.

The 31-year-old woman disappeared in September of 2014 when she went to visit one of her children in Muswellbrook in the Hunter Valley.

She had been driven by her new boyfriend, Sayle Newson, from Belmont to Muswellbrook to meet her ex-partner and their child.

Ms McBride's former partner, Andrew Easton, said she had left his home after their visit to walk to McDonalds.

Mr Newson told police Ms McBride never returned to their meeting point, and reported her missing.

The mother-of-two's remains were found in bushland near Scone in August last year, almost two years after she had reported missing.

Following the discovery, Hunter Valley detectives formed a special strike force to investigate the disappearance, and today made an arrest.

Detectives from Strike Force Karabi arrested the 39-year-old man at a home in San Ramo on the Central Coast, just after 8am Monday.

Mr Newson's was taken to Wyong Police Station to be questioned while police raid his home, a separate property in Buff Point.

Police had not previously identified any suspects in Ms McBride's death but have said it was believed her murder was not a random act.

After discovering her remains last year, investigators said they had a vast volume of evidence to evaluate.

Strike force detectives last week executed two search warrants in the Hunter as part of their investigation.

Police are expected to provide more details on the arrest in a press conference on Monday afternoon.
