Bodies of missing French mountaineers found in Nepal | Abroad

UpdateA rescue team has found three bodies in the Mount Everest region of Nepal, where three French climbers went missing two weeks ago. The men were surprised by an avalanche during their flight and were buried under the snow. The bodies haven’t been officially identified yet, but there’s a good chance they’re the missing climbers.




Since October 26, he has not heard anything from the mountaineers, 34-year-old Thomas Arvey from Nice, 27-year-old Gabriel Meloch from Brianson, and one-year-old Louis Bachaud from Chambéry. The men are said to have encountered problems after an avalanche while climbing the summit of Mingbo Eiger (6,070 metres). As a result, according to the rescue services, they ended up under a blanket of snow “the height of a five-story building.”

It soon became clear that the climbers would not be found alive. Last week, authorities called off the search because weather conditions made it too difficult. Previously, items belonging to the collection were found, including backpacks and other equipment. The two 20-year-olds belonged to an elite group of promising young climbers and was accompanied by 34-year-old Thomas.

“We have sent a helicopter and a rescue crew of professional guides to retrieve the bodies,” police spokesman Rishi Raj Dhakal said. Rescue teams transferred the bodies to Lukla. From there they will be taken to Kathmandu for an autopsy.”
