The worst is confirmed: The body of Yam Levy,
a 23-year-old Israeli woman who has been missing for more than a week, has been found in Germany.
A German police spokesman told the Augsburger newspaper that a body found in the German Alps has been identified as Levy's.
The body was found during a large-scale search around the town of Oberstdorf where Levy was last seen. The search included mountain climbers, dogs and a search and rescue helicopter.
Earlier, local media reported of the sad fate of another missing traveler. According to local police, a 25-year-old from Meiningen (Germany)
was found in the same region in which Levy was last seen. Investigators deemed her death a suicide, but nonetheless her body was sent for an autopsy.
Levy went missing last Tuesday after embarking on a trip to southern Germany in early September.
After a week in Munich she headed to Immenstadt, a Bavarian town near the German Alps and Swiss border, and has been missing ever since.
