Rev. Marvin Reif, walked away from a care facility over a year and a half ago. Marvin, 55 years old, walked away from Protection Valley Manor in Protection on April 3, 2017, where he had lived for a few months. He suffered from depression and anxiety. The Comanche County Sheriff's Office confirms human remains found Wednesday in a pasture near Protection are those of Father Marvin Reif, a priest reported missing two years ago after he left the nursing home in Protection where he lived.
The sheriff's office says the Coldwater Police Department and Protection Police Department responded to the scene where the remains were found Wednesday and determined those remains were human.
The state coroner's office was then notified and responded to assist with the investigation. The Comanche County Sheriff's Office says the remains were transported to the Comanche County Hospital for a positive identification, and then on to a funeral home in Hoisington.
"The family (of Father Reif) has been notified and the remains released to them," the sheriff's office says.
