SA Police say they have had few leads from the public in relation to the disappearance of a Whyalla man who has been missing for nearly two weeks.

Henry Houston, 51, is described as Caucasian, with a fair complexion, about 165 centimetres tall and a stocky build.

He was last seen at his home in Whyalla Stuart on October 30.

Chief Inspector Alby Quinn says Mr Houston needs daily medication.

"He hasn't accessed any of that medication as far as we know from anywhere and therefore we do have grave concerns for his well-being," he said.

"It is important that the public help us out here, if they do know anything at all they can contact either Crime Stoppers or the Whyalla police direct."

The disappearance of Whyalla man Henry Houston, who needs daily medication, has been declared a major crime.

Mr Houston is known locally as Harry and was last seen leaving his Jasmine Drive home on October 30.

Chief Inspector Alby Quinn says Whyalla police have located Mr Houston's car but have limited available resources and Major Crime detectives will take over the investigation.

"We did conduct another search for Harry last week and unfortunately we still didn't find Harry," he said.

"So we've got very grave concerns for him now given the time frame and the limited information we've had coming in."

Police remain tight-lipped about the operational investigations for 51-year-old missing man Henry Houston.

A press conference was called in Adelaide yesterday by the Major Crime Investigation Branch's Detective Inspector Denise Gray.

She did not comment when asked if there was a suspect and if police were treating the case as suspected murder.

No comments were made on recent media reports which alleged that Mr Houston was seen with a huge amount of cash and a suspect was being questioned.

Inspector Gray renewed calls for information from the public saying more than 50 people have been questioned so far.

She said family members had grave concerns for Mr Houston's whereabouts because he was on medication.

Local police and those involved with the investigations have been given strict instructions not to reveal details to the media.

Police are still treating the case as a major crime and one of disappearance.

Local police and State Emergency Services (SES) volunteers carried out a large scale search of the Whyalla area on November 21 and 22.

Police are continuing to talk to neighbours, friends and relatives and to anyone who is coming forward with information.

Further searches have not been ruled out, and Whyalla police are working closely with officers from Adelaide to find clues to the disappearance.

Mr Houston was last sighted between 11am and 12.15 pm on Friday, October 30 when he left his home address on Jasmine Drive, Whyalla in a red Toyota 4Runner registered (SA) WBD-495.

He was wearing a Geelong Football Club baseball cap, a blue flannelette shirt and brown shorts.

He is described as being a man of Caucasian appearance, about 168cm, stocky build, red/grey hair and a red beard.

Detectives would like anyone who may have seen Mr Houston on Friday October 30 or who may have information in relation to his disappearance to contact Bank SA Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
