"Given it is a weekend and lots of people are taking part in recreational activities and visiting places they wouldn't normally visit, we're encouraging any member of the public who sees the vehicle or Mr Shulze to contact Policelink or Crimestoppers."

"That car could be anywhere … It could be in the Gladstone area or outside the region."
