A group of hikers have found the body of a mountain climber that had disappearead in 1982 in an expedition to the Mont Blanc, the tallest mountain in the European Union, at the border between France and Germany.

The French Gendarmerie of Chamonix confirmed the dead man’s identity and identified him as Patrice Hyvert, a 23-year old man that went missing 32 years ago fue to adverse weather conditions while climbing in the area. Search efforts for Hyvert had been fruitless in the past decades.

Hyvert’s remains were found near Talefre glacier, at an altitude of 2,687 meters

Since 1950 about 130 people have gone missing while climbing the over 4,800-meter-high Mont Blanc, and every year when the snow melts, the bodies of missing hikers appear.
