The man that disappeared on 21st October 2018 had finally been found. Unfortunately, he is dead.
When he went missing, he was descending Mont Blanc on the Goûter route. PGHM is almost certain that the victim passed by the Vallot Hut (4 362 m), as they watched the remote webcams.
Eventually, the rescuers found the victim at the bottom of a deep crevasse (at 3 900 m on Dôme du Goûter), as an ice axe shined in the sun, on the surface of the glacier.
