The mother of kidnapped Israeli teenager Naftali Frenkel will address the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Rachel Frenkel on Tuesday in Geneva reportedly will implore the United Nations and the world community to do everything it can to find the teens and return them to their families.

The nongovernmental organization UN Watch said it gave Frenkel its slot to speak before the council and that it was facilitating meetings in Geneva for her with senior international officials.

Iris Yifrach and Bat-Galim Shaar, the mothers of the other abducted teens — Eyal Yifrach and Gilad Shaar — may accompany Frenkel, the Times of Israel reported Monday.

The teens have been missing since the night of June 12. They were last seen trying to get rides home from a junction in Gush Etzion, a bloc of settlements located south of Jerusalem.

Naftali Frenkel is a dual Israeli-American citizen.
