Aside from learning that Volker was born in Soligen, there are few more
details on his disappearance:

"Has Professor Volker been kidnapped? There is growing concern in
academia where there is still no news of the researcher. He was invited to
Rhodes 2 weeks ago to give a conference and has still not shown any
signs of life (...)
According to sources close to the investigation, the professor was
alleged to have been seen for the last time on the Rhodes - Symi shuttle
boat in the company of three men speaking Italian (...)." He would never
have gone and left documents of great historical value in his bag, which
was found at the hotel". Professor Volker was born in Solingen in 1930.
His built his reputation by specialising in an ancient Egyptian
language, which is still spoken today by Egyptian Christians. (...)".

has got something to do with the templars who had settled on Rhodes?
I'll see if I can unearth something...
