An Israeli Occupation settler who was missing for two years was found Thursday in Jordan, the Hebrew newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth, reported.

The 27-year-old student, later identified as Shalom Rotban, was found in a psychiatric hospital in Jordan.

He was taken to the hospital in Amman several weeks ago after he was found wandering in Amman.

Hospital staff realized that Rotban understood Hebrew so they brought in a student who speaks Hebrew and he was able to communicate in writing with Rotban.

Rotban has been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder since he was exposed to a missile explosion in a building in the Kiryat Malakhi settlement. 

He had since stopped speaking, and his family and authorities lost contact with him for two years.

He was taken back to Tel Aviv.
