Daniel Morcombe s family is pushing for safety awareness programs in Tasmanian schools.

The parents of missing Queensland teenager Daniel Morcombe have called for an inquest into their son's unsolved disappearance.

The 13-year-old was last seen waiting to catch a bus on the Sunshine Coast in December 2003.

Daniel's mother Denise Morcombe says she and her husband have written to the Queensland Coroner Michael Barnes.

She says an inquest could reveal more information.

"People have to go into the courtroom under oath and hopefully they will tell the truth," she said.

"Someone might be hiding some information and if they do have to sit there under oath they might come forward with the truth."

Mrs Morcombe says the coroner has sent the request to police.

"It's just natural - all cases have to have an inquest at some stage, and it's been five and a half years now so we just thought that it was time to just put that request in," she said.
