The frozen remains of a Swiss couple who went missing 75 years ago in the Alps have been found on a shrinking glacier, local media has reported.

Marcelin and Francine Dumoulin, the parents of seven children, had gone to feed their cattle in a meadow above Chandolin in the Valais canton on August 15, 1942.

Valais cantonal police said in a statement that two bodies bearing identity papers had been discovered last week by a worker on Tsanfleuron glacier near a ski lift above Les Diablerets resort at an altitude of 2,615 metres.


The remains were partly submerged in a hole in the ice.

An autopsy and DNA testing would be carried out to confirm the identities of the couple.
