Police say they have come across an unidentified female body amid ongoing searches for a mother of two who has been missing for the past 11 days.
Police say the identity of the body has yet to be confirmed. A widespread search has been ongoing since June 2 for Sapir Nahum, a 24-year-old mother of two from Acre.
Police say the body was discovered near the Bedouin village of Ibtin — about 25 kilometers south of Acre — an area officials have been combing over the past few days amid their search.
Police arrested Nachum’s boyfriend — who has a criminal background — in connection with her disappearance, though he denies any involvement.
