An elite IDF unit will join the search for Moshe Klinerman, an ultra-Orthodox boy who has been missing since March, the Kan public broadcaster reports.
The move comes after the family appealed to Defense Minister Benny Gantz. There were talks on the issue between the IDF and police, the report says.
Klinerman, 16, was last seen on March 25, when he left his home in the settlement of Modiin Illit with a few friends for a trip to the Mount Meron area in northern Israel. Months later, there have been few developments in the case and no trace of him has been found.
