Kissimmee, FL - Members of multiple law enforcement agencies continue to search for two missing high school girls from North Miami who were last seen leaving for a Shabbos afternoon walk while on a high school weekend in the Orlando area.
Rivka Moshe and Bracha Katz, both 16 years old and students at the Lubavitch Educational Center’s Beis Chana High School, were attending the school-wide event at the Caribe Cove Resort by Wyndham in Four Corners, located west of Kissimmee.
An official with the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that they are investigating a case involving missing juveniles but declined to give any further details.
Members of Miami Hatzolah and Chesed Shel Emes are on their way to the area, located approximately three and a half hours north of Miami.
Mark Rosenberg of Chesed Shel Emes told VIN News that the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement have been called in and that the Department of Homeland Security has been notified. Rosenberg said that crews are actively searching the area for the two girls.
Katz’s sister Devorah Katz Shor posted a request for prayers for the two missing teens on Facebook late Saturday night.
“Please say tehillim for my sister Brocha tefillah bas yisraelis rivka and her friend rivka bas tziporah,” wrote Mrs. Shor. “They were on a school shabbaton in Orlando and went for a walk. They were supposed to be back by 5:30 but haven’t been seen since. Police, helicopter and K9 are searching.”
