Three of six Israelis who went missing on a river-rafting trip in Bolivia were found on Friday, the Bolivian government announced yesterday. They are reported to be in perfect health.

However, the three have not yet contacted the Foreign Ministry, which therefore cannot officially confirm they have been found.

The three who have apparently been located are Inbar Carmel, Shai Kartel and Ronen Laderman.

According to information received from the Bolivian government, the three broke off from the rest of their group, which consisted of three other Israelis and a foreign national.

Search groups, including a local team sent by the Harel insurance company, and Bolivian military troops are continuing to search for the other travelers.

The group set out down the river on August 31, and was supposed to reach the end of the trail a week ago. The Israeli embassy in Peru, which also operates in Bolivia, is monitoring the search.
