Anne Elisabeth Falkevik Hagen (68) has reportedly been missing for 10 weeks, but the news has only become known to the public today due to fears for what might happen to her if the word of her disappearance got out.

Anne-Elisabeth Falkevik Hagen, the wife of multimillionaire real estate mogul Tom Hagen, has been missing since October 31, 2018.

The kidnappers are demanding $10 million dollars in exchange for Haden's release, which they want paid in the cryptocurrency monero.

Mrs Hagen is married to Tom Hagen, a businessman with an estimated fortune of 1.7bn Norwegian krone ($NZ295m) made in the real estate and energy industries.

Hagen is Norway's 172nd richest person, according to the Norwegian financial journal Kapital.

Norwegian broadcaster NRK says the couple live a "secluded lifestyle" and asked the public to get in contact if any suspicious activity was seen in woodland that surround the family home.
