Today (Sunday), is the fifth day of searches after the three teenagers missing in the Sea of Galilee. During an assessment meeting at the Sea of Galilee, Israel Police Commissioner Roni Alsheich said that the working assumption at this point is that Itamar Ohana (21), Nahman Itach (17) and Liron Karadi (17) drowned after being swept away on a pool lounger by forceful winds on Wednesday.

Alsheich explained that following the working assumption, searches for the three teenagers’ bodies will continue in accordance with professional analyses both under the water and on the ground. He also noted that the installation of the Israeli Navy’s sonar system will be completed on a unique boat which will aid in scanning the ground where the teenagers disappeared.
