Police update 3: Overdue Party in Beswick

Northern Territory Police have located a 27-year-old man.

At around 11:00am this morning, the man was located 40kms north of Mataranka Township alongside the Stuart Highway.

The man was last seen early last week, when the vehicle he was travelling in broke down approximately 12kms south of Beswick community.

Police responded to a report of a man seen near the Stuart highway, a significant distance from the outermost perimeter of the search location. At this time, it appears that the man walked to this location unassisted, using cattle station fence lines and seldom used tracks. It is understood he’s survived by drinking from natural water sources and station bores and troughs.

He is currently being assessed for dehydration and heat exposure at Katherine District Hospital.
