Young couple 'missing in outback' after making call for help

A young couple who were travelling across outback Western Australia are believed to be missing, days after making a call for help with the 4WD they were driving.

WA Police say they have welfare concerns for a man and woman, aged in their early 20s, who were last spotted driving across the northern eastern Pilbara in a silver 80s series Toyota LandCruiser.

The couple were experiencing vehicle troubles as they drove from the Kunawarritji Community in the Gibson Desert North, en route to Port Hedland.

They are believed to have made telephone contact with a vehicle repairer requesting parts in Port Hedland on Saturday, but they never showed up and have yet to make further contact.

The couple were seen by other travellers driving the Canning Stock Route, towing a green box trailer packed with personal property items, police say.

It is believed they may have been driving only at night or in the cool of the day.

Anyone with information that could help confirm the welfare, whereabouts and identities of the couple are asked to call 131 444, or Karratha Police Station on (08) 9143 7200.
