Police have arrested a suspect tied to the disappearance of an ultra-Orthodox boy.

Moshe Klinerman, 16, was last seen on March 25 when he left his home in the Modiin Illit settlement with a few friends for a trip to northern Israel.

Klinerman and his friends arrived at the tomb of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai on Mount Meron, where Klinerman reportedly wanted to seclude himself and asked his friends to continue their trip without him.

He has not been seen since.
