LON­DON — A Church of Eng­land priest who failed to ap­pear in court on the day he was con­victed of pock­et­ing around 24,000 pounds of church funds has gone miss­ing. Po­lice were search­ing Fri­day for 50-year-old Si­mon Reynolds, who was ab­sent from the court in Sheffield a day ear­lier as a jury re­turned a ver­dict of four counts of theft. Reynolds was the priest in charge of All Saints Church in Dar­ton in north­ern Eng­land be­tween March 2007 and March 2013. He was ac­cused of tak­ing fees given to him for wed­dings, fu­ner­als and grave­yard mon­u­ments.
