RAPE AND RUN: “Oakland priest accused of sexually abusing child flees country, church says”

“A Roman Catholic Diocese of Oakland priest accused of sexual misconduct with a minor has fled the country, according to church officials.

Father Alex Castillo was placed on administrative leave Jan. 31 by the diocese, which said it had received an allegation of inappropriate behavior from a male victim, diocese officials confirmed Monday.

Church officials were in touch with Castillo until Feb. 21, when several people attempted to contact him unsuccessfully, said Helen Osman, a diocese spokeswoman. She said the diocese had to check every jail and hospital in the area before they could report him missing Feb. 23.”
