Alright, kids. You're going to need your handy-dandy notebook for this one.
Australia police are asking the public to help them get to the bottom of an SOS signal made of rocks in a remote part of the continent.
"Police are trying to establish if there are any missing persons in the area who require assistance," they said in a statement. The distress signal was spotted by a helicopter pilot, which led to a ground search by police who had to reach the area by air because of the tough terrain.

According to authorities, there are indications that there may have been a camp set up, but "it is just not clear how long ago that was," Senior Sgt. Peter Reeves told the Australian Broadcasting Corp.
