Police hold serious concerns for a man who went missing from the state’s central west.

A man who went missing on his way to work in NSW’s central west may have travelled north, police say.

Wayne Logan, 33, left his home on Mengarvie Road, Parkes around 3am (AEST) on Monday.

His family reported him missing when he did not arrive at work or return home and police have serious concerns for his welfare.

It is believed Mr Logan has ties in Queensland and may have headed towards the border, a police spokeswoman told AAP.

But he also may frequent Forster on the mid-north coast.

Mr Logan has a fair complexion with black hair, brown eyes and a goatee beard.

He is 170-180cm tall and has a solid build and was last seen wearing a fluorescent orange shirt and blue pants.

He was driving an orange 2007 Toyota Camry Sportivo with NSW registration WL666.

Police are urging anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000
