16 years after they were lost in an avalanche.  Glaciers are constantly evolving (and retreating, lately), so this happens.  I suppose it gives families some closure.

I highly recommend reading Jenni's book "FORGET ME NOT" (Mountaineers Press, 2008). The book title refers to a flower which played an important role in Jenni's life.

I only met Alex once, though I have known Jenni and Conrad for years. I hiked up Mt Dana with Jenni, her sons, and Conrad.

Yes this will provide closure for Jenni, her 3 sons, and for Conrad.

I saw this on another site. Glad to hear they have finally been found.
