Police say a body found in northern Israel belongs to a young Israeli woman from Acre missing for two weeks and feared dead.
A widespread search had been ongoing since June 2 for Sapir Nachum, a 24-year-old mother of two from Acre.
A police statement says the body was discovered by police going over an area a second time near the Bedouin village of Ibtin — about 25 kilometers south of Acre, where searches have been focused.
“Police worked without stop for 11 days to find Sapir, but unfortunately the searches ended with a tragic result,” a police statement says.
It says investigators are at the scene gathering evidence.
Police previously arrested Nachum’s boyfriend — who has a criminal background — in connection with her disappearance, though he denies any involvement.
Earlier in the day, a court denied him bail and ordered he remain in custody until at least June 21, though he has not been charged.
