The Reykjavik Metropolitan Police received an announcent about the man's disappearance last night.  His car was found this morning just near the plane wreck at Sólheimasandur. A national coastguard helicopter and SAR teams are now taking part in the search. 

Vísir reported this morning that the man's name is Jaspinderjit Singh. A friend of his brother is looking for him through Twitter. Apparently Singh had a flight booked to Paris on October 12th but his family have heard nothing from him since.
