JERUSALEM -- An American student who disappeared in Israel has been found dead.
Aaron Sofer, 23, was studying in Israel.
He disappeared Friday while hiking with a friend.
On Monday, Sofer's father was one of hundreds of volunteers who searched the forests outside of Jerusalem where Sofer disappeared.
In the same forest Sofer disappeared, the burned body of a Palestinian was found earlier this summer.
