A Hobart teen missing for more than three week was last seen dumping his bedding in a rubbish bin and left his unit completely empty.

Police say CCTV footage of Nazrawi Woldemicheal on October 9 shows the 19-year-old dumping his bedding outside his North Hobart unit.

"His unit at the time was left completely empty - he left the keys and everything inside," Sergeant Sarah Crabtree said on Wednesday.

Mr Woldemicheal's worried mother has not heard from him since September 22.

Unusual movements in Mr Woldemicheal's bank account before his disappearance has also unsettled his family.

"Four or five weeks prior to disappearing he was withdrawing most of his money the same day he was getting it," Darron Lehmann, Mr Woldemicheal's stepfather told reporters.

It was unusual because he would normally use his bank card for purchases, Mr Lehmann added.

Police say Mr Woldemicheal has history of mental illness and they do not believe he has left the state or died.

There have also been several unconfirmed sightings of the teenager in North Hobart and the CBD area.

"We've still got people coming to us saying that they have some theories about where he is," Serg Crabtree said.

His mother Hirut is struggling without her son, and has begged him to come home or just to make contact.

"I don't think our life would be the same without him," she said.

"He's my baby."
