Police hunting missing man; crime suspected
Police are looking for 50-year-old Henk Vierwind, who has been missing since December 6. Apeldoorn police searched his home and property on the Mildert in Nederweert for clues on Monday. Witnesses are requested to come forward.
So far, police investigation uncovered that Vierwind reportedly had a meeting on the Mildert on December 6.
At the time Vierwind and his girlfriend were staying somewhere in the Veluwe because of threats.
