Police continue to search for missing Belgian traveller Celine Cremer who was last seen in northwest Tasmania almost two weeks ago.

Local authorities announced they have now closed the track to the public after confirming an abandoned car in the track's car park matches the description of Celine's, believing the vehicle has been there as early as June 20.

One man, who visited the track on June 24, said there was only one other vehicle in the car park when he arrived. He reported the sighting to police, with his description of the vehicle matching the white Honda CRV Celine had been driving.

Police released a missing persons report on Monday after growing concerns for her welfare following more than one week of no contact with her family. They last heard from her on June 16.

Rescuers battle extreme cold after traveller's disappearance

The search team have faced extreme cold after temperatures plummeted in the nights following Celine's disappearance, with light snowfall and rain recorded in the area, with conditions impacting their efforts.

"Ground search crews, and a police drone are currently at the scene, with the police helicopter to be utilised later today, if weather conditions allow," Tasmania Police said in a statement on Wednesday.

Celine has been living in Tasmania and enjoying travel around the island state for the last six months, however, she had intended to move on to Victoria last week, according to her sister Amélie.

Anyone who has been in the Philosopher Falls carpark since 17 June is asked to contact police on 131 444 to advise whether they saw Celine’s car in the area.
