A Yonkers man is making a desperate plea to help find his nephew who went missing off the coast of Indonesia.
Photos on social media show Aviv Meshil backpacking through Indonesia earlier this month. The Florida man is now missing.
Scott Meshil says his 23-year-old nephew went missing while paddleboarding on June 17 off the coast of a small island southeast of Bali. Witnesses say he was pulled out to sea by strong currents and hasn't been seen since.
Meshil says his family is in contact with the U.S. Embassy in Indonesia. Aviv's father even went to the country - as search and rescue efforts are underway - in the hope that more resources can be spared to help find the missing man.
