LYON, France--Five French climbers were found dead on Wednesday on Mont Blanc, Europe's highest mountain, with a sixth member of the group still missing, local authorities said.
The six climbers, including one guide, had been reported missing since Tuesday evening after they failed to return to their shelter when bad weather hit the mountain.
The group had set out to climb the “Aiguille d'Argentiere” peak on the Mont Blanc massif, which stands at 3,902 meters (12,802 feet).
