New Zealand - David Eric Moen, 19, Tasman Glacier, 16 Sept 1973
I couldn't find a thread on David so thought I would start one. If one exists please delete this.
David was caught in an avalanche in 1973. His remains were not found until January this year. They've been positively identified.
Glad he has been finally brought home.
I can't seem to find any pictures of David online.All posts are MOO!

Body on New Zealand glacier returned to family after nearly 42 years
http://www.theguardian.com/world/201...early-42-yearsMoen had been climbing with an acquaintance he met in Mount Cook village when he was caught in an avalanche on 16 September 1973. The body of his older climbing companion was discovered soon after the accident, which was triggered when the pair walked underneath ice cliffs that gave way.
Moen’s family said they couldn’t put into words what it was like to have him returned after all this time.
