Receding Swiss Glacier Reveals Couple Frozen 75 Years

Swiss authorities say a couple who disappeared from their farm in the Alps during World War Two have been found 75 years later frozen in a glacier.  Officials are conducting DNA tests to formally identify Marceline and Francine Dumoulin, who went missing in August of 1942 after leaving their home to milk cows in a nearby meadow.  Their mummified remains were finally found last week, by a worker at a local ski resort.  Their bodies were preserved in a glacier that is now receding.  Authorities believe they likely fell into a crevice.
