Israelis Search Jerusalem Forest For Missing American Student

Israeli police and volunteers searched a forest on the southern edge of Jerusalem on Thursday for a 23-year-old American student who went missing last week while out for a hike. Aaron Sofer, a Jewish seminary student from New Jersey, vanished on Friday while walking in woods not far from Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust museum, Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said. "He was hiking with a friend, making their way up a hill, and they lost contact," he said, adding that police were still trying to establish if Sofer had a hiking accident or if a crime had occurred, including whether he "might have been kidnapped". In June, three Israeli seminary students, all teenagers, were kidnapped while hitch-hiking in the occupied West Bank, some 20 miles south of Jerusalem, and later found dead.
