“A physically, mentally and emotionally healthy young man does not go missing for 72 hours,” the Sofer family spokesman told the media on Monday. It has now been 3 days since missing Aaron Sofer, a Yeshiva Bochur from Lakewood studying in Israel has last been seen.
“The family is not satisfied with the way the search and rescue operation has been handled thus far,” Dov Hirth said on behalf of the family.
The frantic search has continued but to no avail, Aaron Sofer is still missing. There is a serious concern that Aaron is in life threatening danger as his family states that he is a perfectly mentally and healthy stable boy, and this is very unusual for him to not contact his family or his Yeshiva for such a long period of time.
“It’s well known that a murder took place in that forest, and especially with the ongoing tensions with Palestinians, we feel there should be a military presence and involvement in the search for Aaron,” Hirth concluded.
Hirth was referring to the murder of Muhammad Abu Khdeir who was murdered in the same forest.
Please say tehillim for Aaron Ben Chuldah.
