Police confirm body found in Tel Aviv is missing woman

Police confirm the body of the woman found at a Tel Aviv construction site earlier is Sivan Lavi, who went missing after her son tragically died as a result of a house fire.

Her body was found a construction site on Yigal Alon Steet in Tel Aviv, apparently after Lavi jumped to her death from the roof of a building.

Last night, hundreds of volunteers and police searched the Tel Aviv area for Lavi, who went missing earlier on Saturday, days after her 12-year-old son died in an accident.

Police had appealed for the public’s assistance in their search for Lavi, amid concern for her life.

Lavi was not a suspect in the death of her son.
