    Body Found of Missing American Student

    Eli Beer, the founder of United Hatzolah, spoke with YWN and discussed the finding of the body of Aaron Sofer- the missing American student who was studying in Jerusalem.

    It seems that in the past days, the search teams were focusing on the exact area where Aaron was last seen in the Jerusalem Forest. However after days of searching without turning up any clues, Dovi Meisels of United Hatzolah decided to shift his search team towards a different area that had been unchecked. The area where the body was found was in the Ein Kerem area, which is not far from the original search but albeit a different location.

    Around 4:00 PM Israel time, a SOS message appeared on the United Hatzolah GPS messaging system signifying that a volunteer of the search team requested additional assistance. The volunteer, Yisroel Ehrlich, found a body with red hair donning a white shirt and black pants. The same attire that he was last seen getting on to ride the Jerusalem Light Rail. United Hatzolah appeared within minutes of the SOS call and sent a dispatch to the Police to arrive.

    The police are currently withholding information about the exact position he was found in while they conduct their investigation to clarify exactly what happened.

    The family of Aaron Sofer are currently in Jerusalem. Levaya times will be released upon further notification.
