Body of Russian climber missing for 31 years found preserved in ice like a ‘wax doll’

The frozen body of a Russian climber who went missing 31 years ago on Europe’s highest mountain has been found. Elena Bazykina reportedly looked like a “wax doll” as her body was pulled from Mount Elbrus in southern Russia.

The mountaineer was 36 when she died alongside another six of her friends after they were hit by an avalanche back in 1987.

The body of the woman was found encased in ice by a group of tourists at an altitude of about 4,000 meters (over 13,000 feet). Her USSR passport was found on the remains, as well as her Aeroflot air ticket from Moscow, dated 10 April 1987.
