UPDATE: Missing NJ Student Was on Hike in Israel Before Disappearing

UPDATE: Missing NJ Student Was on Hike in Israel Before Disappearing

Authorities said the Lakewood student who was studying at a Jewish religious school had been hiking in the Jerusalem Forest when he disappeared.

Twenty-three year old Aaron Sofer has been missing since Friday.

NBC 10 Philadelphia reported that Sofer and a friend got separated on the hike while they were climbing a steep incline. Sofer’s friend filed a missing person’s report hours after he disappeared.

A police spokesman said that an investigation is ongoing, and it would even consider the chance that Sofer was attacked by Palestinian militants, according to Fox News. The war between Israelis and Palestinians has escalated in recent months.

There were no clues to Sofer’s disappearance as of Monday evening, and the family was calling for military forces to join the case. “It’s well known that a murder took place in that forest, and especially with the ongoing tensions with Palestinians, we feel there should be military involvement,’ spokesman Dov Hirth said, according to The Jerusalem Post.
