JNS.org The Israel Defense Forces is renewing the search for Guy Hever, a soldier who went missing in the Golan Heights in August 1997, Israel Hayom reported.

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.
