48 hours after Meron tragedy, 39-year-old man still missing

More than two days after the Meron disaster, one person who attended the event is still missing. Police are searching for 39-year-old Yitzhak Hecht of Beersheba.

His mother Sofia tells Kan news: “We’ve checked all the hospitals and haven’t found him.”

Sister Bracha tells Channel 12 he was seen after the disaster and “he apparently stayed to sleep there near the mikveh in tents.” She says the father of three has disappeared once before.
