Disappearing in the sand

The New York Times > Science > Beware! Sand in This Physics Lab May Eat You Alive:

This physics experiment showed an peculiar configuration of sand could cause it to pass any weighted object with minimal resistance. I assume this was only a neat physics experiment, until this comment:
Dr. Lohse said the findings could explain reports of travelers' being swallowed up in the desert.

Do the bodies every reappear?
