Sister Marie-Daniel, 86, and Sister Saint-Denis, 82, fled their nunnery two weeks ago after convent officials said they were being sent to a remote mountain retreat 250 miles away.

The pair vanished from the Sisters of Saint-Joseph convent in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, on the French Riviera convent, on July 12 and have not been seen since.

A third 89-year-old nun, Sister Maurice-Marie, has revealed she also wanted to flee but broke her leg four days before the two elderly sisters disappeared.

A convent insider had told France-Soir newspaper that the nuns were furious at being “put out to grass” in a retirement home after 50 years at the nunnery.

They said: “They decided they wanted to jump before they were pushed.

“They would rather take their chances out in the world than have to live out their days in some far away rest home.”

Sister Colette Philibert, the region’s chief nun, said: “All we want is for our two dear sisters to make contact with us and return to the convent.”
