The daughter of a couple whose remains were found perfectly preserved in a receding glacier 75 years after they vanished has revealed how the mystery left her orphaned and separated from her six siblings.

Monique Gautschy-Dumoulin, (left), was 11 when she waved goodbye to her parents for the last time on August 15, 1942. Marcelin Dumoulin, a 40-year-old shoemaker, and his wife Francine, 37, (inset), left their village in Chandolin, Switzerland to milk their cows in a meadow.

They never returned. Now 86, their eldest daughter Monique told how the mystery had cast a shadow over her life. For nearly eight decades their disappearance remained a mystery. Now 81, their daughter Monique, pictured, said the mystery cast a shadow over her life.

Last Thursday their perfectly preserved bodies were found next to each other in the Diablerets massif on the Tsanfleuron glacier in southern Switzerland, right, along with their identity cards, backpacks, a bottle, a book and a watch they had with them.COUPLE DISAPPEARED-CVCOUPLE DISAPPEARED-2Frozen in time: Almost 75 years later their perfectly preserved bodies were discovered in the Diablerets massif, southern Switzerland, with their backpacks, a bottle, a book and a watch
