Is anyone from this forum currently, or recently been, in that region?

Seems like there may have been heavy rain out there not so long ago, that might have bogged them down.

From 'The Australian' news site 6.30am

Two men, who were believed missing in remote West Australian outback, have turned up safe and well at a regional police station after becoming bogged down on their way to Alice Springs.

Marcus Byers, 41, and Anthony "George" Hotker, 52, left Esperance on Saturday, and on Sunday told friends they were at Loongana on the Trans Access Road on their way north to the Blackstone Community.

The men arrived at Laverton police station on Wednesday evening, telling officers rain delayed their trip and they had no way of contacting friends.

I would have thought a simple phone call on your sat phone would have helped them or didn't they have one? :=((

First thing I asked /commented on when WAPOL posted a missper on thier Fb was was there a satphone/eprib on board ??

One person found my question was silly to ask as they looked ïntelligent people and well equipped vehciles.

Low behold no comms equipment or so it appears otherwise you would have done a check in call to advise of your situation !
