New Jersey officials are pleading for more help, after the disappearance of a 23 year old Lakewood man who went missing in Israel.

Aaron Sofer was last seen on Friday while walking in the Jerusalem Forest.  He was reported missing over the weekend and despite police and volunteers looking for Sofer, there’s been no sight of him.

Sofer’s family is now in Israel to help in the search.  There are fears he may be a victim of the ongoing violence between Israel and Hamas.

There will be a press conference in Lakewood today, with officials calling for more assistance to find the missing man.
