The body of a young Israeli man was found on Friday in South America after the man's sister reported him as missing on Facebook several hours ago, local Hebrew media reported.

He was identified as 31-year-old Haim Ben Baruch, Walla reported.

It's reported that the young man's body was found on the beach off the coast of Panama after he had apparently left the boat he was traveling on and went swimming.

The post said that the young man was on a ship, which had left Panama via the Island of San Blas and was on its way to Colombia. After stopping on the way, the driver of the boat reported that the Israeli had not returned after leaving the boat, but had left his passport and personal belongings on board.

"We are very concerned and ask for your help in locating him," the deceased's sister wrote in the post.

Last week, the body of Yaniv Avraham, a 36-year-old man from Ma'ale Adummim who went missing last Thursday, was found at a hotel in Berlin, Germany.

Local German police are still investigating the circumstances of his death. According to a relative, Abraham flew to Berlin on Wednesday and was scheduled to continue  on to London the following Sunday.

The Foreign Ministry received a notice that he was missing that Sunday, and the Israeli embassies in London, Brussels and Berlin had worked to try and locate him together with the Department for Israelis Abroad in the Consular Affairs Department of the Foreign Ministry.
