French skier who disappeared in Italy in 1954 is finally identified

A French skier who disappeared in Italy more than 60 years ago has been identified after his story was shared on social media, Italian police say. Investigators were unable to identify the victim, and, last month, shared their findings on Facebook. A French family then matched the glasses to a relative, Henri Le Masne, which sparked a forensic investigation. "I am the brother of Henri Le Masne ... who is likely the skier who disappeared 64 years ago. He was a bachelor and quite independent. He worked in the finance ministry in Paris," he wrote in an email, which was shared with the police. The police said a photograph provided by the family showed glasses matching those found by the investigators.
