The father of the IDF soldier feared abducted by terrorists in the Gaza Strip said on Friday he was certain the army will be successful in its efforts to find his missing son.

The military named 2nd.-Lt. Hadar Goldin, a 23-year-old, Givati officer from Kfar Saba, as the IDF soldier presumed to be abducted by Hamas.

Simcha Goldin, Hadar's father, told reporters gathered outside the family home in Kfar Saba that he was sure the IDF would "not leave any stone unturned" in their search for his son.

"We want to support the Israeli army and the state of Israel in its fight against Hamas in Gaza and we are certain that the army will not stop under any circumstance, and will not leave any rock unturned in the Gaza Strip and will bring Hadar back home safe and sound," he said.

The UK Foreign Office said it was urgently looking into reports that missing Israeli soldier also held British nationality.
