Tal Kadoshim, 21, disappeared five days ago while on vacation at the Sea of Galilee (Lake Kinneret) for the Passover holiday. 

Family members, who have not left the site of Kadoshim's disappearance since last Wednesday, called on the public Monday to volunteer to come and help find the young man. 

"We request from the entire Israeli nation to come, whoever can volunteer with jet skis, ATVs, whatever you can do to help," Danny Kadoshim, Tal's father, said. 

"I thank the Israel Police, the Border Patrol commander, and all of my son's unit who have helped in the searches. I'm asking the country to help find him. We will not leave here until we find him."

A Border policeman and resident of the North, Kadoshim went missing, Channel Two reported, after the jet ski he was riding collided with a boat approximately a kilometer off the coast of Ein Gev. 

Despite day and night searching for four days, his body has still not been recovered. Marine police forces will continue searches of the area on Tuesday. 

Although the chances of finding Kadoshim alive decreases as more time passes, the family stressed they have not lost hope.
