Nate's Mother, Sarah Cossey says he was seen by two girls after he left the Woolpack stumbling around on the road near the hotel and towards the crossing out the front of the Mudgee Town Hall Library. She confirms they have seen video footage of this and 'shows that he was struggling.'
"He was very unsteady on his feet and struggled to stay upright and quite disoriented. We are concerned that he may have stumbled into someone's yard or house so if everyone could check their sheds or anywhere around their homes," she said.
Police have confirmed that Natan's wallet has been located, but said earlier television reports his phone was also found are incorrect.

"We encourage businesses and community members to save and review CCTV and dashcam footage recorded between 1am and 8am on Saturday, which could contain vital information to this investigation," he said.
"Please look through the footage or better yet, save it and bring it to Mudgee Police Station for our investigators to assess - we don't want to lose any potential leads. Any minor detail could provide us new leads or indicate areas to allocate search teams."
Sarah said she wanted to specially thank Nate's family and friends who have spent the last several days searching for him and the community who are going above and beyond to help and 'showing so much support.'
