Kidnappers in Norway demand $10M Monero ransom for millionaire's wife
To add on, since the disappearance of Falkevik Hagen, the police have not found any evidence with respect to her safety, according to the reports.
Broeske declined to comment other than saying "the threats (in the note) were of a very serious character".
Anne-Elisabeth Hagen, 68, who is married to multimillionaire Tom Hagen, vanished on October 31 - but news of her disappearance was only just made public. Norwegian police have urged Falkevik Hagen's family to not pay the ransom because transactions made in Monero usually can not be traced.
"We have no suspects in this case", he said.
A ransom demand for nine million euros ($10.3 million) in cryptocurrency has been issued for her release, VG said.
Anne-Elisabeth Falkevik Hagen, married to businessman Tom Hagen, disappeared on October 31 a year ago from her home in Lorenskog, east of the capital Oslo.
Falkevik Hagen is married to Tom Hagen, an investor with business interests in power generation and real estate estimated to be worth 1.7 billion kroner (200 million dollars), according to financial site Kapital. She's been missing for 10 weeks and is believed to have been kidnapped.
"The family chose to follow the police advice", Svein Holden told reporters.
Mr Hagen, who is Norway's 172nd richest man and made his fortune in real estate and the energy sector.

He is the majority owner in Elkraft-an electricity company he co-founded in 1992-holding 70 percent of the firm.
Tommy Broeske, a Police Inspector said that, at present, their goal is to find the missing woman "alive and reunite her with the family".
Police were scheduled to hold a press conference later Wednesday.
Police and Norwegian media initially kept her disappearance quiet but detectives appealed for information yesterday.
NRK says the couple live a "secluded lifestyle" in Lorenskog, east of Oslo, describing Tom Hagen as "media-shy and private".
Police are working with Interpol and Europol on the case.
"We have not known anything comparable in this country", said Broske.
Kidnappings are rare in Norway, a Scandinavian nation of 5.3 million that prides itself on low crime rates.
