Two bodies of missing young men discovered in Kinneret
After an intensive 6-day search, fishing vessel with navy sonar equipment discovers the bodies of two of the three missing young men, who disappeared last week in the Kinneret; bodies identified as Nachman Itach and Liron Karadi.
Two bodies were found in the Kinneret Monday on the sixth day of searches for three young men who went missing amid treacherous currents last week.

 

 

The two bodies were identified as Nachman Itach, 21, and Liron Karadi, 17. Searches are still ongoing for Itamar Ohana, 19.

The bodies were discovered after a fishing vessel fitted with a sonar device from the Israeli Navy identified two human-like objects in the water. Divers discovered the remains at a depth of 20-30 meters roughly 600 meters from the coast.

Given information about their disappearance last week, the two young men drifted roughly 300 meters from their origin before drowning.

 

The bodies were transferred to a police post at Kibbutz Degania where commander of the northern district and Deputy Commissioner Alon Asur updated the families.

The three young men arrived independently of one another during Passover break for vacation. Severe weather swept the three young men, who were on sea-mattresses, into the heart of the Kinneret where they went missing.

 

The same day the three went missing, police rescued some 80 people who had gone adrift.
