Dan Schindler, a resident of Jerusalem, disappeared late Saturday night from the Nayot neighborhood of Jerusalem. The IDU, along with Israel Police officers from the Moriah police station and through extensive networking of the case, found him alive and well early Sunday morning.

According to a police official, Schindler suffers from dementia.

The searches were conducted in extremely cold conditions, and included the use of a helicopter, drones, and mounted police.
