Two British climbers have solved a decades old mystery after returning from a climb to find the bodies of three Swiss brothers who vanished without a trace in the Swiss Alps more than 86 years ago.

The pair vanished on March 4th 1926 and now the three bodies found by the unnamed British climbers have been identified this week in L?tschental, Switzerland.

Johann Ebener, 31, and his brothers Cletus, 29, and Fidelis, 22, will now be buried by their relatives.

DNA tests confirmed that it is the remains of the trio. Their mountain guide Max Rieder who was with them on the day is however still missing.

Marianne Bellwald, 70, the niece of the men who was born 16-years after they vanished said: "We knew one day that the glacier would reveal the men. Finally my uncles are coming home from the mountain."

At least now we know, if anyone is still interested.

Someone had a dark sense of humor, with the title.

After 86 years, they're not likely to turn up alive in Rio. :laugh:
