Renewed appeal for information about the whereabouts of fugitive Derek Ferguson
Police Scotland is making a renewed appeal for the whereabouts of Derek Ferguson, a fugitive who is wanted in connection with the murder of Thomas Cameron in Auchinairn Road in Bishopbriggs on 28 June 2007.
The appeal comes as the independent charity, Crimestoppers, marks the 14th anniversary of Mr Cameron’s death with a £5000 reward being offered to anyone who contacts them anonymously with information which helps lead to the arrest of Ferguson.
Police Scotland officers believe that Ferguson may currently be based among criminal associates in Spain. It is likely that he is no longer known by his original name and may not be speaking with a Scottish accent.
Investigating officers have also released images showing what Ferguson may look like now.
Ferguson features on the National Crime Agency’s most wanted list and he is part of the multi-agency Operation Captura fugitives hunt.
Detective Superintendent John Wyllie, who is leading the investigation, said:
“I am continuing to appeal for anyone who has any knowledge of Ferguson’s whereabouts to get in touch with any information which could help us trace him.
“Since 2007, we have carried out extensive enquiries and I am certain that the commitment and tenacity of our officers and our partner agencies will result in Ferguson being found.
“If you know Derek Ferguson or have any information which will help us locate him, please come forward.
“Any information, no matter how basic it might seem, may be of significant assistance. If you are unsure whether information you know will assist our enquiries, please just share it with us.
“If you don’t want to talk to my investigation team, you can speak to Crimestoppers anonymously as they are also offering a substantial reward for any information which leads to Ferguson’s arrest.
“If you have any information, please do not hesitate to contact Police Scotland on 101 or information can be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
