An Indiana priest believed to be in danger in Greece has been located, his family told Fox59. Rev. Christian Kappes contacted relatives Monday morning to let them know he made it safely out of the country. Kappes, who has been studying in Athens for three years, made a frantic call home a week ago, saying he and his translator were in danger and trying to leave. They were not on a scheduled flight last week and were not heard from until the Monday call. Worried family members contacted the U.S. Embassy, U.S. State Department and Greek authorities to track him down. Fox59 will have more on this story at 4 p.m.
