The missing 15-year-old from Lod, Eli Bidron, was found unharmed on Saturday evening near Karnei Yosef. Police took Bidron to the station for questioning, hoping to discover the reason for his disappearance. Bidron's family had alerted the police after he failed to return home Friday afternoon. He had last been spotted Friday morning withdrawing cash from an ATM machine in Lod. Bidron's mother, Yaffa, told Army Radio that as far as the family knew, Bidron had not made plans with anyone, and described her son as a "mature, serious boy," who was unlikely to get into trouble. "He likes to be at home, to work on the computer," Yaffa said. When asked if she had any message for Eli, Yaffa said that the family would welcome him home "no matter what happened. Just as long as he comes home."
