It appears that the source for the mysterious SOS signal discovered by Australian authorities last month has been found.
Spotted by a helicopter pilot flying over a remote location in Western Australia in late May, the puzzling cry for help spawned a frantic search of the area that failed to find anyone in distress.
Fortunately, it would seem that the case has now been solved and it apparently involves a tale worthy of the eerie signal.
Having seen the story of the mystery SOS circulating in the media, a man contacted police in Australia to identify the sign-maker as his brother and shared an incredible tale of survival.
Found out about the man's epic misadventure at the Coast to Coast AM website.
