AUTHORITIES believe a man who went missing from his Geelong home six months ago may be in Queensland.

The Daily News first spoke to Lori O'Keeffe, the mother of missing Daniel James O'Keeffe, 24, in October when she visited Coolangatta as part of the search for her son.

The family has since moved from their home in Victoria to Brisbane after the first official sighting in the Greater Brisbane area in November.

Queensland police released Mr O'Keeffe's information on Sunday, believing he may still be in the area, but the family has acknowledged he could be anywhere as the sighting was more than six weeks ago.

The family said it was out of character for Mr O'Keeffe not to have contacted them.

He left without his belongings, clothes or wallet and it is believed he was suffering mild depression at the time of his disappearance.

The family has explored countless theories of why their son and brother would choose to "disappear" but maintain he may be sick and not know they're searching for him.

Mr O'Keefe is described as about 182cm tall. He has a slim build and brown hair.
