Two Jewish teen girls go missing in Orlando

Police in Orlando, Florida are conducting a massive search with helicopters and search dogs to try and locate two Jewish high school girls from Miami, who disappeared on Saturday afternoon.

Rivka Moshe and Bracha Katz, both 16-year-old students at the Lubavitch Educational Center's Beis Chana High School in Miami, were taking part in a school Shabbaton at the Caribe Cove Resort near Wyndham in Four Corners, to the west of Kissimmee.

At around 3 p.m. on Saturday they took a Shabbat walk, and were supposed to return at 5:30 p.m. Since then there has been no sign of them.

As it was Shabbat the girls were not carrying a cell phone, money or any means of transportation. Police are asking anyone with information to call the Osceola County Sheriff's office at 407-348-2222.

Bracha Katz is 5'8'' and 130 lbs., with blue eyes and blond hair. She was wearing a black dress and a red sweater. Rivka Moshe is 5'6'' and 120 lbs., with brown eyes and black hair. She was last seen wearing a gray skirt and green floral shirt.

As the police continue their search, the girls' families have asked the public to pray for Bracha Tefillah bat Yisraelit Rivka and Rivka bat Tzipora.
