A priest of a Christian Missionary-run School at Chennur town in Mancherial district, hailing from Kerala, who was feared drowned in the Godavari at Erraipet village in Kotapalli mandal on Sunday, remained untraced.

According to sources, 35-year-old Fr. Tony, had gone missing along with another priest of the same Chennur-based institution, after venturing into the Godavari for a bath at Erraipet on Sunday afternoon.
