Australia man missing for 18 days 'survived on mushrooms'

Australia man missing for 18 days 'survived on mushrooms'
BBC - January 24, 2021

A man who was missing in Australia for 18 days has been found after surviving on mushrooms and dam water, police say.

Search efforts launched after Robert Weber, 58, went missing in the state of Queensland were called off this week.

But police said he had been found near a dam on Sunday by a "property owner", who has been identified in Australian media as a local politician.

Mr Weber was "suffering exposure to the elements" but otherwise safe and well, police said.

Before Sunday, he had last been seen leaving a hotel in the town of Kilkivan with his dog on 6 January. He ran into trouble when his car got stuck in dirt on a farm road.

Police said Mr Weber spent three days in the car before running out of water and setting off on foot. He then became lost but remained near a dam where he survived by "sleeping on the ground, drinking dam water and eating mushrooms".

An extensive air and ground search was suspended after failing to find him, but local property owners and police were told to keep an eye out.

Local MP Tony Perrett and his wife were reported to have found Mr Weber on Sunday just 3km (1.9 miles) from where his car had been discovered, after searching their cattle farm.

"He was sitting under a tree near a dam waving at us," Mr Perrett told ABC.

"We'd been past this dam on numerous occasions over the last week and when we saw him there it was just quite extraordinary," he added.

Mr Weber's dog has not been found.

This whole thing sounds a bit strange to me....


Where was this dude walking around for 18 days? And if it was a farming area with roads and what not, how did he manage to get lost? And if there were farmers living in the area, people traveling down roads in the area, and an "extensive search" happening from both air & ground for at least several days, how was he never spotted for 18 days and he was only 2 miles away from his car?

I mean I know shit can happen easily and I've heard plenty of stories about people that have gone missing being found not far from their last known location...and I'm not familiar with the area this happened...but it just sounds strange to me that he was missing for that long in an area with farmers and roads and an extensive search happening and he never even went far away from his vehicle. If he was out in the woods/bush walking around it wouldn't be strange to be, but it sounds like his car broke down in a farming/ranching area :shrug: .

But props to him for managing to survive :thumbup: .


I also wonder where was going or what he was doing driving down a "farm road" ?

Run out of water you might be delirious. Go crazy of thirst and find water, you just might not wander far. :shrug:
