The remains of a 60-year-old Israeli man were reportedly found near Capri, Italy on Tuesday after a two week  intensive search conducted by the Italian Coast Guard and the Magnus International Search and Rescue company.

The family of the missing man was notified and a DNA forensic test will be performed to complete the identification. The Israeli embassy in Rome will have the remains shipped to Israel for burial if the identity of the man is verified

The man was participating in a cruise in the Capri area when he took a dinghy boat to sail alone roughly two weeks ago. He was never seen again.

An extensive search was conducted for him, including the use of drones, helicopters and diving teams.

The Italian authorities worked in close cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to locate the missing Israeli.
