The pit that Yosef was thrown into

288
Question
In a trip to Israel I visited the Kibbutz Amihad (15 minutes by car north of Tiveria) I was shown a pit that was said to be the Bor Shel Yosef) The location seems to coincide with Dotan indicated in the Torah. Is this valid? If so why is it so unknown to the tourist trade?
Answer
No one knows where is that pit. Dotan of the Torah is identified south west of Bet Shean some 10KM north of Shechem.
