A skeletonized body has been found on a mountain in Austria’s Kleinwalsertal. The Austrian police announced on Tuesday in Hirschegg that it was most likely a man from Baden-Württemberg who had been missing in this area since last autumn. Investigators are now clarifying the identity and the course of the accident.
Investigators assume a climbing accident
The 67-year-old man from Heidenheim was reported missing at the end of October, as the German Press Agency learned from the Austrian police. He was on a challenging climb that runs along the border between Bavaria and the Austrian state of Vorarlberg. The body was found below the Hochgehrenspitze on Saturday. Investigators believe the man fell. (dpa)
