Police investigators are this evening reporting that they have made significant progress in the search for retired Roman Catholic Priest Father Charles Brown.



However, head of the Criminal Investigations Branch (CIB) Assistant Commissioner Devon Watkis says no details can be provided at this time.



The 71-year-old Brown has been reported missing since Wednesday evening when he attended a meeting at a church in Seaview Gardens.



Concerns for his safety mounted yesterday following police reports that his vehicle was found in the Riverton City area late Thursday night.



Vicar of administration in the Archdiocese of Kingston, Father Donald Chambers says news of Father Brown’s disappearance has left his relatives distraught.



Assistant Commissioner Watkis says several teams of police personnel have joined the search.
