After receiving a phone call, Israeli Police are investigating whether a 10 year old child was seen in the back of a vehicle, in the area of Modi’in, in the central region.
Police are not sure of the veracity of the call, but they are not taking any chances; spokesman Micky Rosenfeld emphasized that no report of a missing child has been received at any precinct.
Police and security forces are actively searching even though it is not yet clear whether or not the report is 100 percent valid.
Police toldÂ JewishPress.comÂ that they now receive 10 to 12 of these calls a day.
Helicopters are scrutinizing the area from the skies and roadblocks have been erected on all the streets and major arteries, throwing a dragnet around the area.
The Jewish city of Mod’in is situated next to Highway 443, which leads directly towards the Palestinian Authority capital of Ramallah, located in Samaria. It is also close to Route 446, near the Shilat Junction, which leads to Samaria (Shomron) as well.
