'I love you, come home. I've made you some chocolate muffins. They're sitting here waiting for you.'

The search for Shannon Lowden and Caleb Forbes has already covered up to 2000 square kilometres, with police saying their disappearance is 'totally out of character'.

The search will continue on Thursday for Shannon Lowden, 21, and her boyfriend Caleb Forbes, 22, who have been missing for six nights in the vast and rugged terrain of the Baw Baw National Park after they failed to return from a weekend camping trip.

The search has been difficult as the pair told family they were going to be in the Thomson Dam area but weren't specific about their exact destination.

He said they were hoping Mr Forbes and Ms Lowden were seeking protection inside their car.

"Nothing at all, totally out of character," he said.

Shannon Lowden's mother Debbie said she was hoping for a breakthrough in the search.

She said her daughter was outgoing, bubbly and the type of woman who would do anything for her friends.
