"They are justifiably concerned," Inspector Shane Cashman said.

"They are missing their family dearly. They really want them to come home."

Police believe Mr Forbes' green 1994 Nissan Patrol wagon may have become bogged or snowed in, or was inoperable due to a mechanical fault.

Shane Cashman said yesterday that the couple's disappearance was "totally out-of-character".

"If they are in their car and they've got camping gear that can keep them warm we are hopeful that they will be okay," Insp Cashman told 3AW.

"If they have moved away from their car then that's a concern but if they have stayed with their car, they can access water, they should have some supplies that have almost diminished but the water will keep them going."

A Facebook post published this-morning encouraged anyone with 4WD experience and a capable car to join the search.
