It’s very likely that a couple that disappeared in the Swiss Alps more than 70 years ago might have been found, according to People.com. Two bodies were discovered from a melting glacier and people believe it is of that particular couple. Their daughter, who never gave up on finding her parents, told a newspaper in Switzerland that the news has given her a “deep sense of calm.”
Especially after not having any answers for so many years. According to CBS News, she told the newspaper that she and her six siblings have “spent our whole lives looking for them, without stopping. We thought that we could give them the funeral they deserved one day.”
The daughter’s name is Marceline Udry-Dumoulin. She is now 79 years old. The director of Glacier 3000, Bernhard Tschannen told local media, “the bodies were lying near each other. It was a man and a woman wearing clothing dating from the period of World War Two.”
He also told Reuters that the bodies that were discovered were perfectly preserved in the glacier with all their belongings. The disappearance of this couple has been a long mystery and many had given up in hopes of finding their bodies or even what exactly had happened to them.
People.com notes that the couple, Marcelin and Francine Dumoulin, had disappeared on August 15th, 1942. The two had both gone off to feed their cattle in a meadow above Chandolin in the Valais canton.
Local media reports that the bodies were discovered last week near a ski lift on the Tsanfleuron Glacier by someone working for an adventure resort company. Currently, an autopsy and DNA test are being performed to confirm that these remains belong to the couple.
The couple’s daughter told the newspaper, “It was the first time my mother went with him on such an excursion. She was always pregnant and couldn’t climb in the difficult conditions of a glacier.”
