The decision to resume search operations for Hever was made by Maj. Gen. Orna Barbivai, head of the IDF’s Manpower Directorate. The searches will be conducted in areas where Hever was seen on the day of his disappearance. The IDF hopes to find new evidence that will shine a light on Hever’s fate.

Hever was 20 years old when he disappeared on Aug. 17, 1997, after leaving his base in the Golan Heights. Search efforts over the years have uncovered no clues of what happened to him.

    As an American whose uncle, United States Air Force 1st Lt.Irwin Zaetz, is still missing in action from World War II (one of 73,000 Americans still missing from that war), I applaud the decision of the IDF to renew the search for IDF soldier Guy Hever…Gary Zaetz, Cary, North Carolina
