Israeli missing in Haiti contacts family


(JTA) — An Israeli missing following the earthquake in Haiti is alive and in good condition.

Sharona Elsaieh, the daughter of the late Israeli peace activist Abie Nathan, contacted her family in Israel last Friday, the Jerusalem Post reported.

It was the first sign of life from Elsaieh since a massive earthquake shook the Carribean nation on Jan. 12, leaving untold thousands dead.

Elsaieh, who had been living in Jamaica for several years, was the last known Israeli missing since the quake.
