Default French Mirage 2000D missing in Alps

Been a few days now, haven’t seen a thread about it yet (maybe in the French forums?)...looking grim now.

Article says “debris may have been found.”

He expresses his very strong emotion and deepest condolences to the families and relatives of Captain Baptiste Chirié and Lieutenant Audrey Michelon, who died in ordered air service.
