Update 9:45 PM – Israel Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld reports that no parent has reported any missing child, nor has any complaint been filed indicating that a child has not come home. The case has been closed and the search has been terminated. Thank God, this time it was a false alarm.

Update: 6:00 PM – No parents have reported any missing children. Police are continuing the search, just in case.


After receiving a phone call on Monday afternoon, Israeli Police are investigating whether a 10 year old child was seen in the back of a suspicious vehicle in the area of Modi’in, in the central region.

Police are not sure of the accuracy of the call, but they are not taking any chances. Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld emphasized that no report of a missing child has been received at any precinct and no official complaint filed by any parent.

Police and security forces are actively searching even though it is not yet clear whether or not the report is 100 percent valid. Nevertheless, the search is continuing just in case, Rosenfeld said, adding that it would not end until a security assessment determined that it was safe to do so.

When would that be? “I don’t know,” he replied. The spokesman told TheJewishPress.com that police now receive 10 to 12 of these calls each day.

Helicopters are scrutinizing the area from the skies and roadblocks have been erected on all the streets and major arteries, throwing a dragnet around the area.

The Jewish city of Mod’in is situated next to Highway 443, which leads directly towards the Palestinian Authority capital of Ramallah, located in Samaria. It is also close to Route 446, near the Shilat Junction, which leads to Samaria (Shomron) as well.

    The police were looking to frame six innocent Jews for the murder of an Arab teen while another Jewish child gets kidnapped. Israel needs a professional law enforcement agency instead of this Bolshevik Keystone Kops force.
