Hunter Valley police have released images of a vehicle they believe a missing man and child may be travelling in, as investigators continue to appeal for public help finding the pair.
Police have been told 57-year-old Michael Lantry and four-year-old Conner Lantry were last seen boarding a bus on Wollombi Road, Millfield, headed for Cessnock about 8.30am on March 24.
After they failed to return home that afternoon, relatives contacted police.
Following extensive inquiries, police believe the pair have left the Hunter Valley and have travelled interstate.
Investigators have released images of a white Toyota Camry with Queensland registration plates 444-YMX, which they believe the pair are travelling in.
Family and police hold serious concerns for the welfare of the missing man and child due to the 57-year-old's health conditions and the age of the young boy.
Mr Lantry is described as being of Caucasian appearance, between 170-175cm tall, with a thin build, blue eyes, grey hair and a beard. He was last seen wearing jeans, a grey jumper and joggers.
Conner is described as being of Caucasian appearance, about 100cm tall, with a thin build, blonde hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a 'Ben 10' backpack.
Anyone with any information into their whereabouts is urged to contact Triple 000 immediately.
