The mother of Gilad Sha'ar, one of three yeshiva students kidnapped by terrorists on Thursday night, spoke to the public on Sunday for the first time since her son disappeared.

Mrs. Sha'ar said, "This is a very difficult time for us, but we feel the nation's embrace and the strength of your thoughts and prayers I hope are reaching Gilad. Gilad is a very strong boy."

She thanked the public for its support as well as the soldiers and security forces currently looking for the three boys in the West Bank. "The army, the prime minister and our politicians are doing everything they can and I thank you," she said.
