According to the Malaysian Digest, the police said in a statement, “The discovered equipment suggests that these hikers were likely to have been victims of an accident several decades ago.”
Marcelin, 37 was a shoemaker and Francine, 37 was a teacher. They had seven children, five sons and two daughters.
The bodies were discovered by a driver, who was driving a truck on the glacier when he spotted the couple in the ice. They were wearing World War II-era clothing and were perfectly preserved in a shrinking glacier.

Couple’s youngest daughter Marceline Udry-Dumoulin said: “After a while, we children were separated and placed in families. I was lucky to stay with my aunt. We all lived in the region but became strangers. We spent our whole lives looking for them, without stopping. I can say that after 75 years of waiting, this news gives me a deep sense of calm.”
She concluded in a beautiful and emotional way by saying that she would wear white, not black on the burial of her parents as the white stands for the hope which she never lost.
