Bodies Discovered at Peak of Mexico Volcano May Be Climbers Missing Since 1959

Mountaineers find two mummified bodies on Mexico's highest peak, thought to be remains of climbers who vanished in avalanche 55 years ago
  • First body spotted on Monday just 1,000 feet from Pico de Orizaba's peak
  • Search party found second corpse as they tried to recover the first skull
  • People in Spain and Germany call hoping their relatives have been found
  • But authorities believe the two bodies are those of a Mexican expedition
  • Dense fog has prevented either of the two bodies being removed so far

Quote:
A Mexican search party looking for a frozen body after climbers spotted a frozen skull have stumbled across a second mummified corpse on the country's highest mountain.
The original skull had been seen just 1,000 feet (310 metres) from the peak of the 5,610-metre Pico de Orizaba on Monday.
But when the 12 local civil protection mountaineers climbed to the top of mountain, which sits a five hour drive from Mexico City and is also known as the Citlaltepetl volcano, they made a second gruesome discovery.

The second body was just 500 feet away (300 metres), and was also frozen and mummified, according to Juan Navarro, mayor of the town of Chalchicomula de Sesma, near the mountain in central Puebla state.
Local officials suspect the bodies are two of three Mexicans who went missing after an avalanche 55 years ago on the mountain, which is popular with climbers.
However, it hasn't stopped people from Spain and Germany ringing local authorities, in the hope the final resting place of their long-lost relatives may have been discovered.


Pieces of clothing found on both bodies could help identify them, Navarro said.
However, their identities will not be known until the bodies can be removed from the mountainside.
Rescue efforts have so far been hampered by the weather.


'It was impossible to conduct the rescue this time. Fog prevented the work,' Navarro said, adding that only two of the climbers were able to reach the location of the bodies.
It is hoped the recovery effort will resume at some point today with the help of a helicopter.
The bodies will then be taken to the Puebla state prosecutor's office to undergo DNA identification tests.

Can you imagine dying miles away from home. Never to be seen or heard from again? I hope they find out who these alpinistas were. I'm sure their families would like to know. I've actually been mountain climbing in Mexico. It's beautiful but very risky.

They don't look too bad other than a little freezer burn.
