The air, road and land search for missing Katherine man Paul Baker has been suspended, according to NT Police.
The search covered more 180 square kilometres over two days with the assistance of the tactical response group, local aircraft resources, Katherine police and NTES volunteers.
Katherine Police and Regional Crime would like to thank the members of the community for the continuing reports of information, and the residents of Edith Farms for their cooperation and support in the past days efforts.
Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Ian Kennon said police will continue to investigate Mr Baker's disappearance.
"Whilst the search has been suspended and Mr Baker has not been located in the Edith Farms area, we understand that Mr Baker is known to be a competent bushman," he said.
"It is believed that Mr Baker often travels into other remote areas of the Northern Territory. We still call upon the community to report any information to police as we continue our investigation."
Emergency services have been conducting an air, road and land search for a Katherine man who has been missing for more than three weeks.
Paul Anthony Baker, 60, was last seen in Katherine on August 6.
The search began yesterday in the area of the Edith Farms Road and surrounding rural area.
He has not made contact with friends or family since that time. It is believed Mr Baker returned to his property in the Edith Farms area later that day.
Mr Baker is described as caucasian, about 157cm tall of medium build with blue/grey eyes, fair skin and white hair.
Police are appealing to anyone who has information on Paul Baker's whereabouts to contact police on 131 444 or via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
