The man with the apparent age of 50 would have voluntarily entered the lava cave over 40 years ago and never left it. To try to solve the mystery of his identity, investigators released the detail of the clothes he wore including a tie and wool hat with pom-poms.

What was supposed to be a normal exercise of the Alpine Rescue dei Etna financiers with its canine units on the slopes of the Sicilian volcano, it eventually turned into the recovery of the remains of a man, found by chance in a lava cave, and an investigation in search of his identity to unravel what appears to be a mystery. Rescuers in fact ran into remains of a man from the apparent age of 50 who would have entered the cave voluntarily over 40 years ago and never left it. From the first tests it seems that the man died of non-violent causes: probably unable to get out of the cave which is difficult to access. The problem, however, is that no one seems to have reported his disappearance since the data that the police have managed to find has not yet found a report on the disappearance of a man in the territory with similar characteristics.

The remains of man, about one meter and seventy tall and with congenital malformations of the nose and mouth, Halma, a German shepherd of the Guardia di Finanza who was participating in the exercise in the territory of Zafferana Etnea, was identified by chance by a search and rescue dog. The animal in fact started barking insistently at the entrance to the cave, triggering the alert of the rescuers. The remains of the body as well as the various finds identified in the cave were recovered and analyzed by the Scientific Investigations Section of the Provincial Carabinieri Command of Catania. From the first results of the analyzes it emerged that the death dates back to a period between the end of the seventies and the nineties. From the findings found on the spot, the man seems to have been equipped for the mountain but for some reason he then entered the cave where he died.

To try to solve the mystery of his identity, investigators released the detail of the clothes she wore: long dark trousers, a light striped shirt, a light wool sweater, a black tie, a dark green nylon cape, a wool hat with pom-pom and some Pivetta n. 41. On the site of the remains there were also some old lire coins and an Omega watch with strap and a small comb with case. Any reports of missing persons that match the description can be made to the telephone number 0955192125 of the provincial command of the Guardia di Finanza of Catania.
