Hagen’s wife, 68, went missing on October 31 last year, according to a police statement.

Police finally confirmed the kidnapping of the wife of Tom Hagen — one of Norway’s 200 richest businessmen with a net worth of $200 million — more than two months after she went missing.

Police were staying quiet about the situation, but decided to go public with the case because despite their efforts, they need more information related to her disappearance as they try to locate her.

It appears she was kidnapped from the bathroom of the couple’s home in Sloraveien, BBC reported.

Police reportedly found a note that detailed what would happen to the woman if the ransom was not paid. Police reports did not detail the threats and only said that they were “very serious” — but Norway’s VG newspaper reported the note said she would be killed.

Although police did not release the exact amount to be paid, VG reported it was $9 million euros — equivalent to $10.3 million. The ransom was demanded in the cryptocurrency Monero

The family has been advised by police to not pay the ransom, said police inspector Tommy Broeske at a press conference Wednesday.

No further information about Anne-Elisabeth’s safety has been shown since she went missing October 31.

All contact from those behind the demands has been digital, and there are no specific suspects, Broeske said at a press conference.

Police have asked people with information in the nearby area — including people who were driving in the surrounding area on the day of Anne-Elisabeth’s disappearance — to contact the police at www.politiet.no/tips.
