Missing priest’s sister says he has left Greece

INDIANAPOLIS – The sister of a Roman Catholic priest from Indianapolis who went missing last week in Greece says her brother has made it safely out of that country and is returning home.

Nadia Kappes Charcap of Franklin told The Indianapolis Star ( she received a call Monday morning from her brother, the Rev. Christiaan Kappes, saying he had left Greece and was in another country, which she would not disclose.

Charcap said her brother and his translator had gone to a Greek police station Oct. 1 to tell authorities they were both in danger because the translator’s family wanted to kill them to get $70,000 from her inheritance.

Kappes is a priest with the Archdiocese of Indianapolis who had been living and studying in Greece for three years.
