Man linked to Agape Ministries doomsday cult missing

A man linked to an alleged doomsday cult, Agape Ministries, has been declared missing and police want him to reassure his family.

The last confirmed sighting of 52-year-old Adelaide businessman John Mouhalos was on May 21, 2010, a day after police raided a series of properties linked to the religious sect.

The raids netted 15 guns, slow-burning fuses, detonators, extendable batons and 35,000 rounds of ammunition.

Police are also looking for Agape Ministries leader, Rocco Leo.

“Pastor Rock” or “Brother Roc”, as he is known in Fiji and Vanuatu, escaped the Australian Federal Police during the May raids on his compound.

Mr Leo says that followers must move to Vanuatu before the end of the world, which he predicts will happen in 2012.
