Dodge City Priest Still Missing After Walking Away from Care Facility

Father Marvin Reif walked away from a care facility in southwest Kansas more than a week ago and hasn't been seen since.

A Catholic priest with the Dodge City Diocese remains missing after walking away from a care facility last week.  Father Marvin Reif (rife) left Valley Manor nursing home in Protection on April 3rd.  Duane Reif says his 53-year-old brother suffers from mental health issues.

Duane Reif says his brother's mental health declined recently, following the death of their mother.

A search effort, organized by friends and family members, is underway in and around Protection to locate the missing priest.
