Smit was last seen in Melbourne in 2014, with information provided to police suggesting he had intended to work in mines, presumably in Western Australia or western areas of Queensland or NSW.

People who may be friends or relatives of Smit, or have any information on his current whereabouts, are urged to come forward, however police have warned members of the public not to approach Smit if they see him.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
