Soldiers from the Israeli Navy on Saturday morning located the body of missing yeshiva student Yisrael Kisus, 22.

Kisus, a resident of Petah Tikva, disappeared on Wednesday in the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee).

On Saturday, his body was pulled from the water.

Kisus went missing after he left his kayak in order to swim at an unofficial beach, and it seems he was swept away by the current.

His body was found after extensive searches on the part of Northern District police, the IDF, and volunteers.
