THESE are Scotland’s six most wanted fugitives. 

Described by Police Scotland detectives as “unfinished business”, these men have evaded capture for years – and remain on the run.

From two men wanted in connection with murder to a convicted rapist, Scotland’s police force say they remain “committed” to tracing the individuals and bringing them to justice.

The Police Scotland website reads: “We are committed to tracing the individuals whose details are contained on this page.

“Police Scotland’s International Assistance Unit works closely with various partners within law enforcement, both in the UK and worldwide, to arrest fugitives from justice.

“Fugitives are unfinished business for all police officers. 

“Hard work and great efforts have been put into investigating these crimes, it is frustrating for the victims, their families and investigating officers when individuals evade capture and avoid facing justice. 

“Police Scotland will continue to make every effort to ensure that they are caught and will face the charges against them in court. Warrants will remain valid until arrests are made.”

Anyone with information is urged to contact police via 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
