Bodies Of Lost Couple Found On Melting Glacier In Switzerland After 7 Decades

A Swiss couple went missing 75 years ago and now their bodies have been found on a melting glacier in Switzerland.

According to Swiss police the couple were Marcelin Dumoulin and Francine Dumoulin, and both of them disappeared some seven decades ago in the Alps.

The 40-year-old and 37-year-old were parents of seven children and went missing on 15 August 1942 after gone to feed the cattle in a meadow above village Chandolin.

Marcline udry-Dumculin said they have spent whole of their lives looking for the parents. Now, as their bodies have been discovered, they can be given the funeral that the parents deserve.

Marcline is the youngest daughter of the family. Her father was a shoemaker while the mother was a teacher. She said, “Mom and Dad will finally have their burial.”

The lost couple was discovered at an altitude of 8,580 feet by a worker with Glacier 3000, a cable car and ski-lift company. The bodies have been sent for forensic analysis along with several objects which were found with them like a watch, book and backpack.

Glacier 3000 director Bernhard Tschannen said both the bodies were preserved perfectly and it is believed the two may had fallen into a crevasse.

He added, “The bodies were lying near each other. It was a man and a woman wearing clothing dating from the period of World War II.”

Currently there are reports of more than 200 missing people at Swiss regional police and those date back in 1925.

The daughter said to be wearing white in the funeral.
