Melting Ice Reveals Couple Lost in Mountains for 75 Years
This is What's Trending Today.
It turns out the warming climate is good for something.
The children of Marcelin and Francine Dumoulin of Switzerland finally might find out what happened to their parents 75 years ago.
One daughter, 79-year-old Marceline Udry-Dumuolin, says her parents left their house to milk their cows one day in 1942. But, she says they did not return.
The family lived high in the mountains, at an elevation of about 2600 meters. People from nearby villages searched for the man and woman for over two months. But the search was unsuccessful.
Many people believed the couple fell into a crevasse, or a deep divide in the land.
Young Marceline and her five siblings went to live with other families. She said she and her brothers and sisters spent their entire lives looking for their parents so they could have a proper funeral.
Now, people who work for a company that operates ski lifts may have found the Dumoulins in melting ice. An employee was doing work on one of the lifts last week when he says he saw something strange.
He found two bodies, a man and a woman, close together in the Tsanfleuron glacier. They were wearing clothing from the 1940s and had items like a backpack and food container.
Police said they will do a DNA comparison to find out for sure if the bodies are the missing Doumoulins.
The director of the ski lift company said the bodies were "perfectly preserved."
Many people around the world reacted to the news.
One Twitter user, Amber, wrote: "Wow! This now ends the agony of the family left wondering how/where the couple disappeared."
The newspaper Le Matin reported that daughter Marceline said "this news calms me deeply." She also said if the bodies turn out to be those of her parents, she will not wear black to their funeral.
She said, "I think white will be more appropriate. This represents hope, which I have never lost."
And that's What's Trending Today.

他们的女儿马塞林·奥戴利·杜摩兰(Marceline Udry-Dumoulin)表示，1942年的一天，父母外出挤牛奶 。此后，他们便一去不复返 。
这家人居住在海拔2600米的高山上 。附近村民用了2个月的时间搜寻这对夫妇的踪迹 。但是那次搜寻无功而返 。
此后，小奥戴利和其他5个兄弟姐妹被寄养在其他家庭中 。她表示，自己和家人一生都在寻找父母的遗体，然后为父母举行一场葬礼 。
如今，滑雪缆车公司的工作人员在消融的冰川中发现杜摩兰夫妇的遗体 。上周，该工作人员在一趟缆车中作业时发现了一些奇怪的东西 。
他发现一对男女的遗体在森弗勒宏(Tsanfleuron)冰川中紧紧依偎 。他们身穿20世纪40年代的衣服，还有背包和食物容器等物品 。
据《晨报》报道，奥戴利称“这个消息让我深深地感到平静 。”她还表示，假如这两具遗体真的是自己的父母，她不会穿黑色的衣服出席葬礼 。
她表示：“我觉得穿白色衣服更合适 。白色代表着希望，而我从未丧失希望 。”
