The body of 44-year-old Israeli citizen Uri Sinder, who had been missing in India since last Saturday night, was found on Wednesday in the town of Tiruvannamalai.

The Israeli Consul in Delhi and the Department for Israelis Abroad in the Consular Affairs Department of the Foreign Ministry have been working in cooperation with a rescue company to locate Sinder.

The Foreign Ministry said that Sinder’s family had been notified of his death and that efforts were underway to bring his body to Israel for burial.

In January, the body of 35-year-old Israeli Matan Orgad was found in India, 12 kilometers (7.45 miles) from the village of Kasol in the country's northern Himachal Pradesh province.

Orgad, who lived in Kibbutz Kfar Aza in southern Israel, had not contacted his family since the beginning of December.

On December 2, he left Kasol for smaller villages, leaving his belongings at a guesthouse. When he did not contact the guesthouse within a reasonable period of time, Orgad's family turned to the "Migdal" insurance company, which hired the services of the Magnus search and rescue organization.

Rescue teams working together with Israel's Foreign Ministry and the Migdal insurance company searched various local villages before finding Orgad's body.
