Broken Hill remains confirmed to be Bendigo man

HUMAN remains found near Broken Hill are those of Daniel Rosewall.

The Bendigo man’s father has today spoken about the heavy sadness of losing an only son, brother and a much-loved uncle.

“We are all heavy hearted,’’ David Rosewall said.

“This is a real shame for us – he was a really nice guy, had a lot of friends and this is such a God damn shame.

“The whole thing is still a mystery, there is no rhyme or reason to it.’’

Daniel disappeared in January, 2010. The  car he was driving was found several days later by police – out of fuel and abandoned on a dirt road near Broken Hill, more than 700km from Bendigo.

Daniel’s mobile phone, which had a flat battery, his wallet and baseball cap were found in the car, which still had the keys in the ignition.

In July this year stockmen found human remains in a paddock on Wilangee cattle station, near Silverton and about 70km north-west of Broken Hill.
