Locals in central Queensland are scouring bushland on horses and quad bikes to find a man who has been missing for more than a week.

Aaron Flynn, 29, was en route from the Sunshine Coast to Charters Towers for his uncle's funeral when he was last seen on November 12 walking with a jerry can near Rubyvale in central Queensland.

His car was found last Thursday alongside Rubyvale Road, abandoned after it had ran out of fuel.

A number of Mr Flynn's personal items, including his mobile phone, were also found in the car.

Police and SES workers searched nearby bushland last Friday.

While authorities have since scaled back their search efforts, locals have taken to horseback and quad bikes to try and find Mr Flynn.

With temperatures in the area soaring to 40C in the past week, his family has acknowledged the prospect of finding him alive is not looking good.

"But we have to try our best," his sister Renee Napthali posted on Facebook.
