A 32-year-old Kiwi who disappeared after he went to Bali with a woman he met on Tinder is now believed to have flown out of Indonesia after his credit card was used in the UK.

Josh Goudswaard's disappearance has left his family and friends fearing he may have met with foul play.

Friends and family are using social media to plead for sightings of the Waikato man who now lives in Australia.

Friends have told the Herald Goudswaard is originally from Te Awamutu but also lived in Hamilton.

His phone has been disconnected, but his credit card was reported to have been used for a purchase in Britain on November 5, the West Australian reported.

He was expected to return home to his home in Perth on the evening of November 6 after telling his colleagues he was travelling with a woman known only as Anita.

A spokesman for Goudswaard's family, Aaron Smith, said relatives had been told by Indonesian police that he flew out of Bali on November 1 to an unnamed country.

However, Smith said loved ones are still fearing he may have met with foul play after he failed to board his flight home.

"It's totally out of character. He has never done anything like this before and he has left a lot of things in limbo," Smith told 9 News.

"We just hope we find him soon. I just hope there's no foul play at foot."

The New Zealand national, who lives in Cottesloe, Western Australia, had met the woman on the match-making app just two days before he embarked on his trip to Indonesia.

The last transaction on his bank statement was made on November 5 as authorities claimed his account has links to the UK.

"Phones been disconnected & not replying to emails," Smith wrote on Facebook.

"The last transaction on his bank statement was for a small amount registering in Stroke On Trent in the UK."

During his trip, he told friends he might be out of reach for a couple of days because he was going trekking.

The alarm was raised after Goudswaard, who runs a fitness business in Armadale, failed to show up at work after telling his colleagues about his flight home.
