Mystery priest found
MISSOURI (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - It was a story that had the internet raging; Who was the mystery priest who helped a crash victim in Missouri?
It looks like the internet has now helped solve the mystery.
Reverend Patrick Dowling came forward on a website commenting on the story after family wanted to know who the mystery priest was.
Dowling stopped and prayed with the crash victim, 19-year-old Katie Lentz, and emergency workers.
Crews took more than 80 photos that morning but Dowling isn't in one of them leading some to believe his mysterious appearance was a miracle.
Maybe the firemen mistook me for another. That is the only explanation that I have. I didn't hide, I just stood there waiting and praying, said Reverend Patrick Dowling.
Dowling was travelling Highway 19 between mass assignments that morning, covering for another priest who was sick that day.
