Do quitter and Partir both mean to leave?

I was asked in a C1 test to complete the sentence, " Après....., ils se sont perdus". After leaving, they got lost.

I wrote, "Après avoir quitté, ils se sont perdus". It was marked incorrect. Why?

This relates to:
Après être allé = After going (auxiliary être) -

You can't use quitter on its own, it requires an object.
