Brody's parents and police are concerned for his welfare, believing that the teenager's disappearance is out of character.

Mr Hurst is described as having mid-length fair hair and was last seen wearing a blue shirt with a yellow logo, tan pants, black shoes and a backpack.

He is between 170 to 175 centimetres tall and weighs around 65 kilograms.

Police this morning have released a photo of the Northern Beaches teenager online in a public appeal to locate him.

"If you can see this Brody please go home or ring the police," one person posted online.

"Your parents would be out of there (sic) mind with worry for your safety."
