A Jesuit Brother who went missing from Tamil Nadu a month ago was found in Orissa today. Brother Mariadoss Antonimuthu, 65, came to St. Vincent Pro-Cathedral in Bhubaneswar, the Orissa capital, looking for a priest. Father Joseph Kalathil, vicar general of Cuttack-Bhubaneswar and the parish priest who met him, found something odd and informed a nearby Jesuit house. Father P. Tony, who took the Brother to Loyola Bhavan, said the senior Jesuit can remember only certain things. “He is safe and taken for medical check-up in Loyola Hospital” in the city, Father Tony told ucanews.com. The Brother, who was working with Pathai Illam, a Jesuit-run organization helping the rural poor in Chennai, went missing on January 17. Bhubaneswar is 1,235 kilometers northeast of Chennai, the Tamil Nadu capital. The police in Tamil Nadu had launched a search for the Brother since his disappearance.
