Maryborough detectives are renewing calls for public information about a murder as the search continues for a man wanted over questioning.

They want to speak to 38-year-old Daniel Baumgart about the death of a 43-year-old Crestmead man whose body was found Ross Creek in Gympie, on November 1.

Police believe Mr Baumgart may be hiding in the Maryborough region, and changing his appearance by shaving his hair and beard to avoid police.

People are being warned they could face serious criminal charges, if they're helping Mr Baumgart hide.

Anyone with information is being asked to call Crime Stoppers.
