Labor filed a police report after party leader Shelly Yacimovich's cell phone went missing, on suspicion that it may have been stolen in an attempt to access secret information.

The party expressed concerns on Tuesday night that Yacimovich's phone contains text messages and e-mails with sensitive political and personal information, which she would prefer not be publicized or fall into hostile hands.

The Labor leader and her staff searched for the phone on Tuesday, following a press conference in which she criticized Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's economic plans, and said they hope it was misplaced and not stolen.
