On the morning of March 10, 1979, Dirk Schiller, then age 3, was playing with his 6 year old sister by a shallow frozen brook in a field near to the parking lot of a stalactie cave in Harz, (then in former East Germany), while his parents were loading provisions into their car in the otherwise empty parking lot.
Upon seeing that Dirk did not return to the car, his sister saying that he was right behind her, his parents searched the whole snow-covered field, finding no footprints leading to the brook or the river further down. The frozen surface of the brook near which the children had been drawing pictures into the snow with sticks was still intact. Dirk had not drowned. The small boy, who was afraid of crossing bridges, must have taken the other way over the road to get back to the parking lot. He had disappeared without a trace.
