NSW Police are renewing their appeal for information into the disappearance of a man near Brewarrina more than 20 years ago, as part of this year's Missing Persons Week.

Maxwell George, aged 47, was last seen working at a property as a farmhand about 70 kilometres north-west of Brewarrina on Friday, March 17, 2000.

He has not been seen or been in contact with family or friends since.

Mr George is described as being of Caucasian appearance with a fair complexion, 175 centimetre tall, a medium build with fair hair and a moustache.

In March 2008, a coronial inquest found that it was likely that Mr George had died, but the date, place and cause of death was undetermined.

NSW Police continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding Mr George's disappearance and Central North Police District Commander, Superintendent Andrew Hurst, is urging anyone with information to come forward.

"Police have conducted extensive enquiries with the aim to find out what happened to Mr George and are seeking closure for the family," he said.

"Any information, no matter how insignificant, could be the missing puzzle piece to solving the disappearance of Mr George. I urge you to pick up the phone and call Crime Stoppers if you know something."

Information is treated in strict confidence. The community is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.

Missing Persons Week is an annual national campaign to raise awareness of the issues and impacts surrounding missing persons and runs from August 2-8.
