I only live 20 kilometres from where he went missing and have been through the National Park where he went missing.
Walk in any direction besides North and you are only 2-3 kilometres from houses where his home is.
The problem is if you walk North you are walking into untouched bushland for around 600-800 kilometres which itself spreads out to an area approx the size of Florida or Great Britain.
We have reports of missing hikers or tourists quite often because the virgin forests are so close to the Major cities.
"Matthew" also has a disability (which his family will not disclose) which may have contributed to his decisions of not wanted to be seen by people he does not know.

It's not the Amazon jungle there
He was deliberately hiding himself. I remember seeing a photo of him before he went missing, he looked a bit 'special'. Who knows what was going on in his head. But yeah, I'm pretty sure the area he was found in is a popular hikers trail.
