Police announced Wednesday that search and rescue teams have expanded the search for 23-year-old Aaron Sofer, an American Haredi Jew who disappeared last Friday near Jerusalem.

 

 

Also in the announcement, police released a video of Sofer disembarking from the light rail in Jerusalem at Mount Herzl. The video is the last known documentation of Sofer's whereabouts. Police say that there is no indication that nationalistic violence played any role in his disappearance.

Police are also coordinating with actions of professional search and rescue units and many other efforts."

"The search is centered on the Jerusalem forest, nearby neighborhoods and the area where the young man lives. Today, the search was expanded even further," said Bahat.

 

Volunteers from several organizations are also taking part in searches as are K-9 units from the IDF.

 

Sofer's parents expressed gratitude to Pariente, saying that they were thankful for the police and volunteers for their continued actions throughout "the days and nights," to find their son.
