The body of a missing Israeli lone soldier from the United States was found in central Israel with gunshot wounds.

David Menachem Gordon, 21, was found Tuesday afternoon, hours after reports that he was missing were made public. His army-issued assault rifle was by his side, according to the IDF.

Israel’s Channel 2 reported that Gordon was from Ohio.

Gordon a member of the Givati Brigade, was last seen at a military base in central Israel on Sunday at around noon. He was wearing his military uniform and its purple beret, and carrying an assault rifle, Israel Police said.

Gordon, who entered the Israeli army in August 2013, wrote a blog about his experiences in the military.
