A major land search and rescue operation to locate a man missing near the Canning Stock Route in the Pilbara has re-commenced today and police are calling for anyone who may have seen him to contact them immediately.

Police say 32-year-old Anthony Collis and a 39-year-old woman left Newman on Thursday and were travelling along the Canning Stock Route near Lake Disappointment in a white Mitsubishi Triton that day, on their way to Darwin.

It is believed the pair became separated late on Thursday afternoon.

Police were contacted by travellers later that night after the woman walked into the Georgia Bore Camp, about 8.2km north of Lake Disappointment on the Canning Stock Route, in a disorientated and dehydrated state.

She has since recovered and is currently assisting police.

A search to find Mr Collis involving a search place, Tactical Response Group trackers, SES volunteers and local police began yesterday at first light and is continuing today.

The pair’s vehicle was found yesterday afternoon about 1km north of Lake Disappointment but the missing man was not with it.

Mr Collis is described as being fair skinned, 185cm tall, of medium build and with blonde hair.

Police are asking anyone who might have seen him or picked him up to contact them immediately on 131 444.
