'Shock': MP's emotional plea for info on missing publican

UPDATE: 

THE moment Deb Frecklington saw her friend's face pop up on a Queensland Police missing persons Facebook post her heart sank.

It's a familiar sight but the Nanango MP was shocked to see the image of someone she knows so well.

Coominya publican Andrew Scott, 55, hasn't been seen since 7.30am on Monday morning.

Ms Frecklington, like many others in the small community north of Lowood, was shocked to hear of his disappearance.

She often spends time talking to the well-known, happy and jovial publican and says the behaviour is completely out of character.

"He knows my family very well and likes to reminisce while reminding me he remembers me as a 10-year-old girl," Ms Frecklington said.  

"He's never been shy to tell me, as the local member, what he believes I should be doing for his community.

"He loves the area and is one of those guys who always has the best interests of his community at the front of his mind.

"He's a good man."

Ms Frecklington has spoken with Andrew's friends and says the mood is one of shock and concern.

"I was down in Coominya this morning to lend whatever support I could.

"We as a community hope found safe and well."

She pleaded for anyone with information, or who may have seen Andrew's black truck (pictured below), to contact police.
