Rescue teams conducted searches through the forests near Haifa on Tuesday evening in an attempt to locate a 14-year-old boy from Bnei Barak who went missing during a hike with his family in Nahal Sfunim.
According to reports, the family had split into two groups during the hike, and both groups thought that the boy was with the other. Only when they arrived back at their cars did they realize that he was lost.
After the family alerted police, the search then began. Helicopters and police on horseback are also assisting in the search.
