LAKEWOOD, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey politicians are calling for more help from both the U.S. and Israeli governments for a student who went missing during a hike in Jerusalem last week.
Twenty-three-year-old yeshiva student Aaron Sofer has been missing since Friday when he went on a hike with a friend in the Jerusalem Forest.
His parents have flown to Israel.
Police led a massive hunt for the Lakewood, New Jersey man, but have not found him.
U.S. Rep. Chris Smith and other local officials in New Jersey are planning a news conference for Tuesday in Lakewood to seek help in finding the man.
