A jacket and a set of keys are recovered north of Ein Gedi’s David stream, near the Dead Sea. Rescue forces say the items likely belong to Shay Yaacov Noam, 31, who has been missing since Friday morning.
The rescue forces in the area say the jacket and car- and house-keys were found not far from where Noam was last seen.
Rescue forces looking for Noam, now for the fourth consecutive day, are considering several possible scenarios for his disappearance. One is that he hitched a ride to friends and is staying with them, unaware that he is considered missing. According to another scenario, Noam was injured in a fall from one of the cliffs near the Dead Sea, and is either unconscious or unable to move. According to a third scenario, he was swept away in a flash flood. According to a fourth scenario, he went swimming in the Dead Sea and drowned there.
