The 59-year-old Everton Park man was reported missing on Sunday, 14 March.

He was last seen leaving a Stellmach St residence at Everton Park around 8am last Sunday in a 2011 Toyota Landcruiser. This vehicle was then found yesterday on a property west of Kilkivan.

Police are appealing for any motorists that may have travelled along the Wide Bay Hwy in Cinnabar last night, who may have seen this man walking to contact police.
