“The response from the community has been well received and has led to a number of addresses of interest,” a police spokeswoman said.

“The man remains outstanding and is still believed to be able to assist police in the investigation into the armed robbery on Sunday night.

“Police from the Gympie CIB/CPIU, General Duties and Tactical Crime Squad have been involved in the investigation.

“There is a high probability that he is armed and should not be approached.”

The spokeswoman said Mr Watts was most recently sighted “in the Gympie area” at about 9.30am Tuesday morning.
