Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich discussed the matter with Tel Aviv Police officials on Friday.
"The disappearance will be examined in due time and lessons will be drawn," he said. "I am here mainly to support the police. I have no doubt that their determination will lead to the witness's return and to the completion of the investigation," Aharonovich said.
