A father and son have died while climbing in the Swiss Alps.
The two Frenchmen, aged 47 and 22, set off on September 17 from the village of Saas-Fee to climb several 13,000 foot peaks, said police in the southern canton of Valais.
They were last in phone contact two days later and were eventually reported missing by the fatherís wife. Police did not disclose their identities, but said they came from the eastern Alsace region.
An air rescue service pilot spotted the two bodies lying on a glacier yesterday and they were taken to the nearby resort of Zermatt by helicopter. The exact circumstances of their deaths remain unclear, police said.
At least 66 people have died while climbing in the Swiss Alps since the start of May.
