Teenagers discover human skeleton in woods near Winterthur

A group of teenagers from Zurich who were on an orienteering expedition in a forest near Winterthur, have discovered a human skeleton.

Police, who found a credit card near the bones, say it's probably the remains of a pensioner who has been missing for three years.

His identity and cause of death have not yet been established.

The 14-year-old told the newspaper, Blick: "We discovered the skeleton hidden under branches and leaves. At first we thought it was a fake. "
