Click to follow
Catholics across Scotland will hear a statement at Mass this morning confirming that the missing bishop of Argyll, Roderick Wright, is with an as yet unnamed woman.

It has emerged that no one has heard from the Rt Rev Wright, 56, since last Monday when he tried to contact the head of the Church of Scotland, Cardinal Thomas Winning.

The Cardinal was not available and the bishop has not been in contact since. He has failed to keep appointments with church officials. It is not known when Bishop Wright, who lives alone in a house beside St Columba's Cathedral in Oban, left town, although he has not been seen since the middle of last week.
