Clive Palmer's nephew Clive Mensink, who is wanted for questioning over the collapse of his uncle's Queensland Nickel refinery, has been found in Bulgaria.

Mr Mensink, who has lost a significant amount of weight and now has a beard, was tracked down in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia last week by a media organisation.

He was with his Bulgarian girlfriend, Gabriela Konstantinova, and another friend leaving the movies after seeing 50 Shades Freed.

"Mensink looked horrified and refused to answer ... questions as he ducked into a pedestrian subway after being approached last week," a news report stated.

In March last year, the Federal Court issued two warrants against Mr Mensink after he failed to appear in Brisbane for examination.

He had left Australia in June 2016, months after QN collapsed, leaving $300 million in debts and hundreds without a job.

The Australian Federal Police said they were "aware that an arrest warrant had been issued for Mr Mensink".

Reports say that it is unlikely Mr Mensink will face extradition as he has not been charged with criminal matters.
