    A post on his Facebook page on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. said he was visiting a friend at the Orange Park Medical Center.

    Neighbors say he usually lets them know when he will be out of town longer than a day or so.

    Robert's house was blocked off with crime scene tape on Wednesday, and a note tucked under a cross on his front door read, "Call me ASAP. Everyone is looking for you.".

    I realize the snipped parts seem incongruent, but I thought relevant because it seems like he was going about having a typical Sunday and then somewhere along the way something happened leading to crime scene tape at his house Very concerning! Father Robert will be in my thoughts today, for sure.

    Robert is a senior priest in the diocese, serving in limited capacity at San Sebastian and St. Anastasia parishes in St. Augustine.

    The Catholic Deaf and Blind Ministry at the Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind in St. Augustine was started under Robert’s direction in 1980.

    On Wednesday morning, detectives said they were out all night searching for him. They also have police tape around his home.

    ​Catholic priest missing: person of interest named
    ST. AUGUSTINE Authorities in northeast Florida say a 28-year-old man is a person of interest in an ongoing investigation into the disappearance of a 71-year-old Roman Catholic priest.

    (...)

    Mulligan says investigators want to talk with Steven James Murray, a Jacksonville man with a criminal background whom the senior priest with the Diocese of St. Augustine may have been counseling at the time of his disappearance.

    At a Wednesday afternoon news conference, St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Cmdr. Chuck Mulligan said Robert’s car, a blue Toyota Corolla, was in a two-county pursuit Tuesday evening that began in St. Johns County. Authorities lost the car in heavy traffic in Jacksonville, he said.

    Mulligan said investigators believe the driver of the car was 28-year-old Steven James Murray. Detectives have obtained an arrest warrant for Murray on a charge of aggravated fleeing and attempting to elude and would like to speak with him regarding Robert’s disappearance as well.

    Foul play suspected after St. Johns County priest vanishes

    Steven James Murray knew the Catholic priest, who had apparently reached out to help him after referral from a mutual friend, according to Cmdr. Chuck Mulligan. Murray had recently gotten out of jail in Jacksonville, jail records show.

    Detectives from the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office seen at the Stars Rest Inn on Lane Avenue near I-295 Wednesday evening said they were there as part of the investigation into Robert's disappearance. The Westside hotel is one of the addresses police had listed for Murray.

    I remember long ago when it was unheard of for a priest to be harmed or murdered. Sadly it's not true anymore.

    I'm so sad to read this. He just wanted to help the poi. I don't think he's alive. Probably killed for his car.

    All MOO!
