Police believe they left Alice Springs in a late model white Mitsubishi Triton, with South Australian registration plate S483 AAI, after telling friends and family they were going on an "afternoon trek".

The trio was reported missing on November 23 and police began an air search three days later, focused on areas south of the town near Owen Springs, Stuarts Well and Rainbow Valley.

The search has now been expanded to include the region further south, near Finke and Kulgera, with a police plane covering the southern part of the Stuart Highway.

"We're asking anybody who's going to be travelling back to stations or communities around Titjikala, Santa Teresa, Finke, Kulgera if they can keep an eye out and if they do see the vehicle to let us know," Superintendent Vicary said.

"We cannot emphasise how concerned we are, if anybody is travelling on those backtracks, please keep your eye out."

Superintendent Vicary said it was not known what supplies the group had with them but police did not believe they had bought new supplies from any nearby roadhouses.

"We have to go on the basis that they had limited supply," she said.

"We are very concerned that if they did have supplies that they would have run out by now."

Temperatures in the region have ranged from the mid to high 30s, with two days above 40 degrees.

Superintendent Vicary said there was no point conducting ground searches until the ute was found because the current search area was too large.

She said there had been some initial discrepancies in the information provided to police.

"A lot of the information that we're getting isn't coming directly from people that have spoken with them," she said.

"Information that has come through the family initially was third hand, so obviously things can get lost in that translation.

"We'd rather that people just confine their comments on social media to supporting the family, who are obviously extremely distressed at this stage."
