The husband of the missing five-person Connecticut mother called the night before she asked in 2017 for divorce and custody of their children to claim that she was terrified of him, DailyMail.com can reveal.
Fotis Dulos, 51, concerned that he did not know where his wife Jennifer Dulos and their five children were, he told Farmington Police at June 19, 2017.
The successful property developer said his wife had brought their children to New York at 4 p.m. that day, but after they arrived, he could not reach them.
But the next day Jennifer asked for a divorce and moved herself and children to a rented house an hour's drive away in New Canaan, starting bitter divorce proceedings that have continued over the past two years.
In her sworn statement on June 20, 2017, Jennifer wrote: & I am afraid of my husband. I know that filing divorce and filing this motion will make him angry. I know he will retaliate by trying to harm me in some way. & # 39;
The emergence of the 911 call is because Jennifer was reported missing and was last seen on Friday morning when she dropped her children into school.

Authorities revealed on Wednesday that a criminal investigation is being conducted to determine if Jennifer was the victim of & # 39; cheating or intentional damage & # 39 ;.
Jennifer's friends describe her as an & # 39; incredibly committed mother & # 39; who would never leave her children voluntarily.
Jennifer was reported missing on Friday night after she had not been heard in 10 hours and it was discovered that she had missed several appointments that day.
Authorities found Jennifer's car, a black Chevrolet Suburban 2017, near Waveny Park, about a mile from her home in New Canaan.
In 2017, Jennifer & # 39; s 14-year-old husband Fotis Dulos called 911 at 9:30 PM.
He says in the call from DailyMail.com: – Oh yes, I am worried about my wife and children because they have left to go to New York and I have been unable to get in touch with them.
& # 39; They had to be there … They don't answer, they don't answer their mobile.
& # 39; They have left, I want to say 4, 4:30 pm. They are supposed to be in New York.
& # 39; I have been texting & # 39; I see that the texts have been delivered, but nobody responds to me. & # 39;
The next day Jennifer asked for divorce and an urgent order for full custody of her children, saying she feared Dulos would abduct their children.
Dulos and Jennifer have twin boys, a twin sister and girl and a daughter. The children are between the ages of eight and thirteen.
In her sworn statement on June 20, 2017, Jennifer (pictured with her children) wrote: & I am afraid of my husband. I know that filing divorce and filing this motion will make him angry. I know he will retaliate by trying to harm me somehow & # 39;
After filing a divorce, Jennifer and her children moved from the family's luxury home in Farmington (photo) to a home she rented in New Canaan in June 2017.
& # 39; I believe he is very capable and vengeful enough to take the children and disappear, & # 39; she wrote in the submission.
Jennifer claimed that Dulos did her verbal abuse and said that he & # 39; irrational, unsafe, bullying, threatening and controlling behavior & # 39; had been exhibited, according to a certified declaration of divorce proceedings that Stamford Advocate had received.
& # 39; I'm scared of my husband & # 39 ;, she said. & # 39; I know filing divorce and filing this motion will make him angry. I know he will retaliate by trying to harm me in some way. & # 39;
& # 39; In the course of our marriage he told me about nauseating revenge fantasies and plans to inflict physical harm on others who have wronged him. & # 39;
& # 39; I am afraid of my safety and the physical safety and emotional well-being of our minor children. & # 39;
Jennifer claimed that Dulos had threatened to & # 39; all children & # 39; to take and & # 39; disappear & # 39; in his native Greece or another country. She claimed that he told her that you will never find us.
In one application, Jennifer claimed that, according to the Hartford Courant, Dulos had applied for Greek passports for himself and his five children.
The couple were both required to convert their US passports as part of their temporary custody agreement.
Jennifer claimed that Dulos was obsessed with water skiing during their wedding and insisted that their children become world-class skaters.
She claimed that he put them on a & # 39; dangerous and excessive & # 39; training regiment, which sometimes caused them to practice up to 11 hours a day.

Dulos reportedly threw a ski against a rock and broke it when one of his children refused to train one day.
& # 39; We are all scared to disobey my husband & # 39 ;, Jennifer wrote in the sworn statement.
Jennifer said her children wanted to stop water skiing and beg for help. She also claims that the training was so intense that one of her son had serious mental health problems.
She mentioned this while noticing that Dulos had bought a gun that he had kept in the house.
& # 39; I'm terrified of the safety of my family, especially since I discovered the gun, since my husband has a history of controlling, fleeting, and delusional, & she said.
& # 39; I'm afraid one of the kids will find it, especially in light of my concerns with our son. & # 39;
Dulos later turned the gun over to Farmington's police department.
Dulos still lives in Farmington's home, where he runs his real estate development company The Fore Group.
For more than a decade, Jennifer & # 39; s family had been lending money to Dulos for his business, according to court documents.
Her father, the deceased Hilliard Farber, would loan Dulos money so that he could buy houses to build luxury houses. After he sold the houses, he repaid Farber.
Jennifer & # 39; s mother fought in court against Dulos and claimed that he owed $ 2.5 million in real estate loans

Detectives shifted their search for the 300-acre Waveny Prk on Wednesday, scouring a wooded area, pond and corn field with K-9 officers and a police drone

Jennifer & # 39; s mother Gloria and Hilliard & # 39; s legacy claim that Dulos has since stopped paying back their loans, claiming he owes them more than $ 2.5 million.
They also claim that Dulos no longer paid the mortgage on the couple's six-bedroom Farmington home, which was guaranteed by Hilliard and Farber.
The house is now for sale for $ 4.35 million.
Jennifer said that she and Dulos had previously agreed that they would get a divorce and she and the children would move to her mother's house in Pound Ridge, New York while staying in Farmington's house.
But Jennifer said that Dulos, who she said was cheating, told her that he was planning to send his new partner and daughter into the house – even though the court prohibited exposure to romantic partners as part of Jenny's temporary custody agreement.
She also said that, around the same time, Dulos would switch between & # 39; tell me that our marriage is over and threaten me that he will never allow me to divorce him & # 39 ;.
After Dulos had his Argentinian lover stay in the Farmington home, the judge began to restrict his access to his children.
& # 39; Given the close bond between all five children, the court believes that it is very likely that all five children were adversely affected by the breakdown of their parents' marriage, the suspect's relationship with his Argentinian lover and the pressure that the defendant has placed on them to lie, & the judge wrote.
Jennifer is a journalist and writer who graduates from Brown University and the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University
A guardian appointed by the court has recommended that Dulos has limited access to his children and that all visits are supervised and that all telephone conversations are recorded.
In January 2018, the court suspended Dulos' telephone privileges with his children after he cried during a conversation with them.
Jennifer is a journalist and writer who graduates from Brown University and the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.
& # 39; If Jennifer is somehow able to see this, I just want to say that we love you and we will bring you home safely & # 39 ;, said family spokesperson Carrie Luft.
& # 39; We are all in the same situation of not knowing, but hoping and wishing and praying, & # 39; she added.
& # 39; Those thoughts and energy are incredibly important and I want everyone there to know that family and friends are incredibly grateful for that support. & # 39;
Anyone who has been in contact with Jennifer Dulos on Friday, May 24, 2019 or has information about her disappearance, calls the New Canaan Police Tip Line at 203-594-3544.
