JACKSONVILLE — Police in the Jacksonville area are searching for Father Rene Robert.

The priest has been missing since last Sunday.

The main suspect in his disappearance was caught in Aiken County, SC this week.

Steven Murray was extradited back to Florida Friday.

Now police are searching between I-10 and 295 for any sign of Robert.

They are asking those who live in the area to be on the lookout and to call CrimeStoppers to report anything suspicious.

Murray is in the St. John’s County jail and investigators are questioning him about Father Robert’s disappearance.

Murray is only charged with Aggravated Fleeing and Attempting to Allude.

Florida investigators say they do suspect foul play so he could face more charges.
