Please Pray for Missing Priest

UPDATE: Priest Body Found

The body missing priest, Father Greg Brennan, has been found in the waters of the Kinzua Dam Reservoir. Father Brennan went missing on Friday after going to a cabin owned by the St. Bonaventure Friary to go boating. He was reported missing when he didn't show up for mass on Sunday at his church, St. Pacificus Roman Catholic in Cattaraugus County. Father Brennan was a priest at St. Pacificus for 18 years and on staff at St. Bonaventure University for 21 years.
I do not know if there has been an update. I am just getting around to my email now.

SOUTH VALLEY, N.Y. (AP) ­ Authorities in two states searched Monday for a Roman Catholic priest after his boat turned up empty and damaged near the shore of a reservoir that straddles the New York-Pennsylvania line.

The Rev. Greg Brennan, 56, was reported missing by officials at St. Bonaventure University after he failed to return from a boating trip Saturday on the Kinzua Dam Reservoir, which lies on the western side of New York's Allegany State Park.

His damaged, 19-foot motor boat was discovered Saturday evening on the reservoir's east shore in Pennsylvania a few miles south of a marina in South Valley where it was usually moored.

Several law enforcement agencies in both states used boats during the search Monday, but rain and fog prevented state police helicopters from taking part, said New York State Police Investigator Bob Ingalls.
