The body of a woman was found in the waters of the Kinneret Wednesday morning, and police fears that the remains found are those of Tamar Feldman, 25, missing since Sunday. Feldman, a Tiberias resident, vanished after her inflatable mattress capsized into the waters far from the shore. Police contacted her family and later Wednesday they will be brought to identify the body. The body was found by a naval police team floating approximately 100 meters from the shore. On Sunday Feldman went swimming with two friends. The group encountered strong eastern winds and Feldman's friends swam to the beach against the current. Only when they reached the shore did they notice that Feldman was not with them. They contacted police immediately.
