According to the man's sister, the couple is suffering from a serious form of religious insanity and has been preparing for the "end of the world" for months.
It concerns 39-year-old Marcel Brietzke, originally German, but has been living in the Netherlands for 26 years, and his 41-year-old wife Andrea, of Nijkerk.
Their children are 9.12.15 and 17 years old. The couple wanted to leave earlier but were stopped then. The Child Protection Board took the children out of the house earlier.
The man's sister has since phoned on Facebook asking for her brother and his wife to check out, writes the newspaper.
She writes on Facebook; "My brother and his wife left on Tuesday and left their 4 children. They are psychologically ill (religious insanity). They are reported missing! The children miss their mom and dad. Fortunately they are in a good place now and are in good hands !! "
Bald comes to Jesus
Marcel has a "Bald Jesus coming" website or Jesus' second coming. He then writes that "we" suffer from high rents, expensive food, financial crisis, bird flu and so on. He writes that Jesus comes to us quickly and ends all problems. The end of time would be near, though he doesn't call a date.
Marcel is also active on Twitter. His latest posts are about "corrupt Germany".
