We propose an asymptotic formula for the probability density PF(x,t) that a random walker starts at an arbitrary origin on a fractal at time 0 and arrives at site x at time t. We have numerically verified the proposed form for PF by testing a composition rule for probabilities which requires that the walker must have been on some site of the fractal at any intermediate time. We further write a Wiener integral representation of PF.
