SUNDAY 3.55PM: A 37-YEAR-OLD man reported missing by his family has walked into a police station in Central West Queensland.

Andrew Langlan's family reported him missing yesterday after they last heard from him when he stopped in Emerald on his way to Mt Isa.

A Queensland Police Service spokesman this afternoon confirmed Mr Langlan was no longer 'missing'.

"He attended the Cloncurry Police Station in relation to being a missing person," the spokesman said.

"He told officers he had been travelling to Mt Isa for work."

The spokesman said the man blamed the lack of mobile phone reception, possibly made worse by the wet weather the region has been enjoying lately, on his inability to maintain contact with his family.

Police are seeking public assistance to help locate Andrew Langlan from the Mount Isa area.

Andrew, 37, spoke with family yesterday afternoon on the phone and stated that he was in Emerald and was driving towards Mount Isa.

He hasn't made contact with anyone since and police are concerned for his welfare due to the weather conditions in the area.

Andrew is described as Caucasian, around 185cms tall and has a slim build, blonde hair and tribal tattoos on his arms.

He is believed to be travelling in a white 2005 Holden Commodore with Queensland registration 666 KRL.

Anyone who has seen him or his vehicle is being urged to contact police.
