Mr Brock's parents, Jan and Rick, told PerthNow they were worried for his safety and his disappearance was out-of-character.

 

 

"Not knowing (where he is) is definitely the hardest thing," Rick said.

"It's like him being in Afghanistan again. Not knowing if he is coming home. Not knowing where he is and what he's doing."

Mr Hewitt was with the Army for three years and served eight months in Afghanistan. He has post-traumatic stress disorder.

Anyone with information is urged to call 131 444.
