Hiding in plain sight

Some of the Europe’s most wanted criminals are long-term fugitives who have successfully integrated into society. They could be living ordinary lives and working normal jobs but have a dark, criminal past that they are desperate to hide. The 2021 EU Most Wanted campaign is focusing on fugitives who are hiding in plain sight. Help us find them by viewing the photos on this website and sending us a message with any information you may have.
