The couple, according to the sister, suffered from a serious form of religious insanity and have been preparing for the "end of the world" for months.
This concerns 39-year-old Marcel Brietzke, who is German-born but has lived in the Netherlands for 26 years, and his 41-year-old wife, Andre, from Nijkerk.
Their children are 9.12, 15 and 17 years old. The couple wanted to leave early but then stopped. The Child Protection Committee took the children home early.
The man's sister has since posted a call to Facebook and asked that her brother and wife be important, the newspaper reports.
She wrote on Facebook: "My brother and his wife left on Tuesday and left their 4 children behind. They are psychologically ill (religious insanity). They are reported missing! The children are missing mom and dad. Fortunately, they are now in a good place and good hands !! "
The baldhead worships Jesus
Marcel has a place called "Bald Commt Jesus" or the Second Coming of Jesus. He then writes that "we" suffer from high rents, expensive food, financial crises, bird flu and so on. It says that Jesus comes to us quickly and stops all problems. The end of time would be near, though he doesn't call the date.
Marcel is also active on Twitter. The latest posts talk about "corrupt Germany".
