A private search vessel has located a French submarine that went missing in the western Mediterranean more than 50 years ago, officials said yesterday, raising hopes the mystery over the disappearance can finally be solved.

“It’s a success, a relief and a technical feat,” Defence Minister Florence Parly wrote on Twitter, after the wreck was discovered off the southern French port of Toulon.

“I am thinking of the families who have waited for this moment for so long.”

The Minerve submarine was lost off France’s southern coast with 52 sailors on board on January 17, 1968.

Despite multiple search efforts over the years, it had never been found.
