United Hatzalah program honors our survivors, war veterans with specialized medical care
The body of an American tourist missing since last week was discovered near Beit Shean.
A large-scale search was mounted over the weekend for the missing tourist.
Herman Kuehn, 80, of Platte County, Missouri, was separated from his group on May 26, while visiting the antiquities sites in Beit Shean, in north eastern Israel. His body was discovered Tuesday in an industrial zone north of the town.
There were no signs of violence or foul play on his body.
Kuehn and his wife, Mary, were in Israel for a tour through the St. Paul School of Theology; they are members of the Pine Ridge Presbyterian Church.
Kuehn had suffered a head injury several years ago and sometimes became confused, the family told Israeli media. On Monday the family released a statement thanking people who had been praying for the return of Herman Kuehn.
