Chile: Missing Israeli Hiker Located

Erez Szpakiar, the 24-year-old hike who disappeared in Chile last weekend, was found on Thursday.

His brother Shaul reported that Erez was "standing on his feet." He added that Erez had slipped or gone off the path he was on when he last made contact. Their father and uncle are on their way to the area, the father having headed an Israeli search party that left for Chile on Wednesday night.
