TOMS RIVER – The Toms River man who went missing while on vacation in Germany has been found.
Joram Heilbronner went missing over three weeks ago and was recently discovered in a hospital in Nuremberg, according to Rabbi David Amar of the Congregation Ohavat Olam in Howell, of which Heilbronner is a member.
“I would like to report that after long intensive searching, our President Joram Heilbronner was found. We were able to locate him in hospital in Nuremberg, he is un-conscience, and we are not sure of his overall condition as of now,” Amar stated on the congregation’s Facebook page.
Later reports stated that Heilbronner is in an induced coma and in critical condition.
The 64-year old Toms River resident went missing while on a month-long trip to Europe. He headed to Germany on Oct. 11, taking a short detour to Athens, Greece on Oct. 15, then back to Germany. According to police reports, Heilbronner was staying at the Hilton Munich Airport hotel; he checked in on Oct. 18
Amar stated that Heilbronner suffered from serious health problems, including diabetes.
While Heilbronner remains in critical condition, Amar and the congregation continue to send help and support.
“I have contacted the Jewish community in Nuremberg, and the local rabbi is on his way to see him,” he stated. “We are in the midst of coming up with a strategy of our next actions…Please keep Joram in your prayers.”
