    Alex Bitton: missing in Haiti

    A Jewish Canadian is missing in Haiti after the earthquake, Israeli rescue teams have reported.

    The family of Alexander Shmuel Bitton say that he had just arrived at the Montana Hotel in Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince, when the earthquake struck.

    Mr Bitton’s colleague, known only as Martin, said he saw Mr Bitton at the hotel reception desk and arranged to meet him by the poolside bar.

    When the earthquake struck, Martin was waiting for Mr Bitton by the pool. He has not been seen since.

    The IDF Home Front Command and the ZAKA delegation in Haiti said they would begin the search for Mr Bitton, but were being realistic about the small chances of finding survivors in the rubble at this stage.

    ZAKA volunteer Ya’acov Vag said: “We’ve received detailed information about the missing person and the location of the hotel.”
