Sept 24, 2005 - Czechoslovakian man Stan Dobias, 60, disappears after walking down a track to lock the gates to the property he was living on in the Attack Creek area, near Alice Springs.
The case of Stan Dobias, 60, who also disappeared from Attack Creek, on September 9, 2005, is not described in the same breath. Dobias was suffering from Alzheimer's. He was a caretaker at the Attack Creek gravel pits and had gone to lock a gate and has not been seen since. It is widely accepted that he became confused, wandered, and perished.
Those who live up and down Territory road stops are familiar with the phenomenon of people with problems taking themselves to the open road to find something but, instead, losing themselves.
