The body of Asher Green, 28, from Jerusalem, who went missing two months ago in Peru, was found on Friday. Green, who had dual Israeli-US citizenships, was living in the United States for a number of years but his parents still live in the Jerusalem area. The body was found by a local, but only on Saturday morning was it identified as Green. The body will be flown to Israel and is expected to arrive on Tuesday for burial. Green's family notified the Foreign Ministry of his disappearance as soon as they lost contact with him. The Foreign Ministry updated the embassy in Lima, as well as local authorities. Over the past two months the family tried to reach out to Israeli backpackers in Peru via a number of internet forums, but was unable to gain information on his whereabouts.
