Remains Of Swiss Couple Missing Since 1942 Found In Swiss Glacier

The remains of a Swiss couple that went missing in 1942 have been found at the edge of a melting glacier in the Alps 75 years later, Swiss media reported on Tuesday.

The couple’s dead bodies were found lying near each other in the Diablerets massif in southern Switzerland, along with backpacks, a bottle, a book and a watch.

Bernard Tschannen, the head of the Glacier 3000 ski resort said that the bodies were found last Thursday.

‘It was a man and a woman wearing clothes from the last (world) war’, Tschannen told the Le Matin daily. ‘The ice preserved them perfectly and their belongings were intact’.

It was August 15, 1942 when Marcelin Dumoulin, a 40-year-old shoemaker at the time, and his wife Francine, a schoolteacher aged 37, had left their village of Chandolin to milk their cows in a meadow above Chandolin in the Valais canton.

Both of them never returned from the trip and Tschannen said that the couple had likely fallen into a crevasse.

To know about their identities a DNA search has been planned, but Marceline Udry-Dumoulin said she believed the remains were of her parents, Marcelin and Francine Dumoulin.

‘We spent our whole lives searching for them, without stopping. We never thought we’d be able to give them the funeral they deserved,’ Dumoulin, who was four when her parents went missing, told Le Matin.

The bodies were found close to the Glacier 3000 ski resort (pictured) last Thursday, according to Bernard Tschannen, the head of the resort

‘I can say that after 75 years of waiting this news gives me a deep sense of calm,’ added the 79-year-old.

Searches were carried out for more than two months but ultimately the seven orphans – five boys and two girls – were placed in foster homes.

‘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,’ Udry-Dumoulin said.

‘After a while, we children were separated and placed in families. I was lucky to stay with my aunt,’ she said. ‘We all lived in the region but became strangers.’

‘For the funeral, I won’t wear black. I think that white would be more appropriate. It represents hope, which I never lost.’

  2. “According to my study, after a the foreclosure home is offered at a sale, it is common for that borrower in order to still have some sort ofthat remaining unpaid debt on the mortgage. There are many loan merchants who try to have all rates and liens repaid by the next buyer. However, depending on a number of programs, rules, and state legal guidelines there may be a number of loans that are not easily fixed through the exchange of financial products. Therefore, the responsibility still lies on the lender that has obtained his or her property in foreclosure. Thanks for sharing your thinking on this weblog.”
