" (Daniel Barnes) has gone walkabout on Sunday night, he has taken enough food for a couple of days, his surfboard, a sleeping bag and his toothbrush....... he has not taken his phone or wallet or shoes, we are hoping he has just taken some time out up the beach but no one has heard from him.," Jacki Patterson posted on Facebook.

It is believed he might be staying around Farnborough Beach.

A police spokesperson confirmed the police are looking for the 17-year-old after he was reported missing yesterday afternoon.
