An Israeli family is missing in the Crimean Peninsula, it was reported Friday.

According to Channel 2 News, the five members of the family – a grandfather, grandmother and their three grandchildren – have not yet contacted their relatives since arriving in Crimea and have not checked into their hotel.

The five members of the family landed two days ago in Moscow, where they took a connection to Simferopol, capital of Crimea. The Simferopol Airport confirmed that the five landed at the airport and collected their luggage, but all contacts with them have been lost since, according to Channel 2.

Family members who were trying to contact them from Israel were alarmed when they could not find them and have turned to, among others, the Foreign Ministry, the Interpol, and the Israeli consul in Kiev.
