French skier’s remains identified with the help of social media after 64 years


( CNN) Italian police have identified the remains of a French skier more than half a century after he was lost in the Alps, thanks to social media.


Advances in DNA technology allowed forensic investigators in Turin to narrow down the criteria last year: the man was around 30 -years-old, 1.65 meters( 5.4 feet) tall, and succumbed sometime in early springtime.

Investigators also established that the man went missing sometime in the 1950 s, after they dated a coin in his pocket to sometime between 1946 -1 950.
