  • Jos Brech was one of Europe’s Most Wanted Fugitives

The prime suspect in the killing of a Dutch schoolboy who vanished from a campsite over 20 years ago has been arrested.

Nicky Verstappen, 11, disappeared during the night of August 9, 1998, while at a summer camp at the Brunssummerheide nature reserve near the German border. His body was found nearby the next day.

Nicky Verstappen, 11, was found sexually abused and murdered in 1998.

About a day after Nicky went missing while at a summer camp in 1998, Brech was stopped by military police close to the scene but was not considered a suspect.

Former scout master Jos Brech, 55, was detained in Spain yesterday over the disappearance and murder of schoolboy Nicky Verstappen.

"Spanish police were able to arrest him after someone recognised the man from the picture", prosecutor Jan Eland said.

Jos Brech, 55, who was publicly named as the suspected killer last week, was apprehended by Spanish police about 50 km (30 miles) north of Barcelona on Sunday.

Wolf Creek star John Jarratt is charged with sexually assaulting a woman
In December 2017, the woman reported the incident to officers from Eastern Beaches Police Area Command. He also appeared in the 1975 Australian classic Picnic at Hanging Rock and Australia in 2008.

Spanish authorities are expected to hand the suspect over to counterparts in the Netherlands shortly. "Justice will be done", wrote journalist Peter R.de Vries, spokesperson for the victim's family, on Twitter.

"The family is very relieved".

The Guardian reports that as the 20th anniversary of Nicky's death approached, Dutch officials in May 2017 put out a request: that roughly 20,000 men in the Limburg area where Nicky was killed submit their DNA that October as part of a mass testing program.

Police said new digital techniques helped them to develop a DNA profile in 2008, from traces found on Verstappen's clothing, but there had been no match.

After he was reported missing, police examining his home discovered he was a 100% match for the DNA found on Nicky's body.

A European-wide warrant for Brech's arrest was issued on June 12.
