British holidaymakers and expats are being urged to look out for 11 of the UK’s most wanted fugitives thought to be on the run across the continent.
All have links to Spain, but the National Crime Agency (NCA) and charity Crimestoppers have warned that they may have moved around the continent and be using fake identification.
Those wanted include Kevin “Hemp” Parle, a 39-year-old wanted over the murders of 16-year-old Liam Kelly and 22-year-old mother Lucy Hargreaves.
Also on the list is Allan Foster, 43, from South Shields, suspected of murdering David Rice in a car park in 2006.
Andy Cooke-Welling, from the NCA’s International Crime Bureau, said: “Operation Captura has been a resounding success.
“We urge holidaymakers and expats in Spain and elsewhere across Europe to keep their eyes and ears open this summer.
“There may also be people in the UK with vital information on their whereabouts, and we would urge them to get in touch. Having the public’s attention focused on them makes it so much harder to hide.”
Another alleged criminal that the public are being asked to look out for is Sarah Panitzke, a 45-year-old from Fulford, York.
Ms Panitzke has been on the run from UK authorities since 2013, accused of laundering around £1bn for a crime group involved in tax fraud.
One of those caught via Operation Captura was Christopher Guest More Jr, who is accused of murdering a father at a remote farmhouse in Cheshire.
Mr More, 41, was caught in Malta in July, 16 years after Brian Waters was tortured and beaten to death in front of his two adult children.
The public are advised not to approach any of the fugitives but to contact police immediately, while anyone with information is asked to contact Crimestoppers.
