MISSING Rockhampton man Robert Martinez's family is holding on to all the hope they can, following a recent visit from CIB homicide detectives.

A family member posted on the Help Find Robert Martinez and Chantal Barnett Facebook page: "just had a visit from homicide... they assure me they're on the right track and moving forward".

The post went on further with a comment from a page administrator, saying: "thank you everyone. Yes, they'll get them, not that it's the answer we're hoping for.

"If by some miracle they're still alive, that would be great. But, like homicide say, they will be caught."

MISSING: Chantal Barnett.

Rockhampton CIB boss Detective Senior Sergeant Scott Moon said although there were no new searches being conducted in the region, the investigation team was following strong leads from members of the public.

"The Crime Stoppers hotline is a big source of where our leads come from in this complex case," Det Snr Sgt Moon said.

If anyone has any information that could help find Robert and Chantal, call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Police Link on 131 444.
