The Mexican bishops' conference on Tuesday asked authorities to provide more information on the disappearance of Father Joaquín Hernández Sifuentes of the Diocese of Saltillo.
The bishops called upon the competent authorities Jan. 10 to “provide more information to civil society and the entire ecclesial community on the events that led to his disappearance, so they can collaborate with their search and so that Fr. Joaquín Hernández Sifuentes returns alive to his community.”
The priest, who serves at Sacred Heart parish in Saltillo's Aurora neighborhood, has not been seen since Jan. 3. The diocese reported his disappearance Jan. 7.
