In the Netherlands province of Drenth, a family of seven adults were found living inside a hidden room in their farmhouse for nine years "waiting for the end of time." The family included a father, 58, and six male children, aged 18 to 25. Apparently one of the young men had enough and visited a nearby pub. After drinking five beers, he told the bar owner that he had run away and needed help. From the BBC News:
Officers visited the remote farmhouse and carried out a search. They discovered a hidden staircase behind a cupboard in the living room that led down to a secret room where the family were housed...
The farm is outside the village and is accessible by a bridge over a canal.
The farm, which is part-hidden behind a row of trees, also has a large vegetable plot and a goat...
The local postman said he had never delivered a letter there. "It's actually pretty strange, now I come to think about it," he told Algemeen Dagblad news website....
Police in Drenthe confirmed that a 58-year-old man had been arrested and was under investigation after refusing to co-operate.
