The body of a 21-year-old haredi man from Brooklyn was found on Wednesday, one day after he told his wife he would be late coming to meet her.

The man, Yanki Kraus, disappeared shortly after speaking to his wife on Tuesday. Since then, dozens of haredi volunteers participated in searching for him.

Kraus was supposed to meet his wife Rivkie at 4:15 p.m. on Tuesday, but an hour before the meeting sent her a text message saying that he would not be on time. His wife then asked him to come home at 4:30 p.m., and he replied "okay". This was the last interaction with him.

The local Shomrim organization disseminated Kraus' photograph and personal details throughout the Borough Park area over the last 24 hours, asking the public to try and locate him.

So far no details were made public with regards to the circumstances of his death.
