William Hague has urged the release of three abducted teenagers believed to have been kidnapped by Palestinian militants in the West Bank.
"I strongly condemn the abduction of three Israeli youths in the West Bank," Mr Hague said.
"My thoughts are with their families and I hope for their safe return home soon. I appeal to those who are able to bring about their release to take urgent action to do so."
Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu blamed the teenagers' disappearance on Hamas, saying he held the Palestinian Authority responsible for the disappearance.
Palestinians reject his claim and insist the trio went missing on Thursday in an area under Israeli control.
