JERUSALEM — Israeli police say a recently found body has been identified after a forensic investigation as that of a U.S. religious student who disappeared while hiking in Jerusalem last week.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri says the body was confirmed early on Aug. 29 to be that of seminary student Aharon Sofer. She says “there is no suspicion of foul play,” meaning Sofer’s death was not a militant attack or a criminal attack.

Samri had no further details on how Sofer died.

The body was found the night of Aug. 28 in the same area where Sofer disappeared last week. The 23-year-old Sofer, of Lakewood, New Jersey, had been hiking with a friend in a hilly, forested area on the outskirts of Jerusalem.

Sofer’s parents had flown to Israel to assist with the search.
