Brock Hewitt, from Butler in Perth’s south, was last seen on Monday afternoon at a Boating Camping Fishing store in Yanchep.
The 29-year-old father, who served in Afghanistan, told his family he was going on a fishing trip to South Mole in Fremantle, but he never returned.
“This is way out character for Brock, this is not Brock,” his mother Jan Hewitt said.
“Just come home.”
Mr Hewitt suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder following his time in the army, Perth Now reported.
Police said he visited the hardware store in Yanchep about 4.45pm on Monday and a short time later was seen at a service station.
He then drove in an easterly direction towards the intersection of Indian Ocean Drive and Wanneroo Road.
His parents said their son rarely goes for days without contacting them.
His father Rick said his son was a “good bloke” and loved fishing, four-wheel driving and being in the bush.
He is described as light skinned, of slim build, 175cm tall, with short dark hair and a tattoo on his left arm.
He was last seen wearing a singlet, shorts and thongs.
Brock was last seen driving awhite Nissan Navara dual cab ute, with the registration plate 1GDR069.
