There are many instances of Padre Pio appearing somewhere where he could not have been -- it's not always clear if he was physically present in two places or if his apparition was in one place while his body was in another. But there were lots of first-hand eyewitness accounts in the biography I just finished reading.
There are a surprising number of Catholics on FR who used to be 'earnest inquirers'. I'm one of them . . . so if there are any questions you have that a convert could answer, fire away!
‘Padre Pio Santo’ ora pro nobis.
