No trace has been found of Hupel Portogaz, an American tourist who disappeared this week from the Red Sea port of Eilat, in southern Israel.

Police said that Portogaz had been living in Israel for two years and arrived in Eilat one month ago. His abandoned car containing his suitcases was found by police but no clue to his whereabouts was uncovered.
