Kappes family says he is safe but not yet back in Indiana.

The missing priest studying overseas who has been missing for a week has made contact with his family. Virgil Kappes, Christiaan Kappes‘ father says he is elated that his son has made contact, but there is still no clear return date for the priest, whose interpreter was reportedly hospitalized.

Virgil Kappes says he does not want to make any more comments to the media until his son is back safely. Father Kappes‘ sister Nadia Charcap of Franklin says she’s also spoken with her brother and  he‘s not yet back in America. She says he is in an undisclosed location and will return home soon.

Charcap says Kappes‘ interpreter friend has also escaped Greece. That‘s where it‘s believed the young woman was involved in a dispute with family over a possible inheritance. Charcap says she‘s awaiting her brother‘s return so that they can get a clear story about what exactly took place.

The Archdiocese of Indianapolis is not confirming any contact with Kappes or making any comments on his whereabouts.
