The people most wanted by police in Wales right now (2024)

Police in Wales are looking for a number of people who are wanted in relation to a series of alleged crimes. Officers are asking for members of the public to come forward if they have any information about the whereabouts of the people listed below.

This is not a comprehensive list of every wanted person in Wales. South Wales Police shares its active appeals on its force Facebook page but not all are featured as officers make every effort to trace suspects prior to them being published as wanted.

North Wales Police does not remove all its appeals once they are no longer active, meaning some older ones still appear online. The force was not able to confirm whether these were still active and the people were still wanted. To maintain the greatest degree of accuracy we have chosen to only include appeals shared since May 18, 2024, for both forces.

We have asked both forces to provide us with full lists but they have declined to do so. Gwent Police and Dyfed-Powys Police appeals featured here are up to date.

Below are the people highlighted by police forces as wanted in Wales at the time of writing (June 28). If you have seen any of the following people, or know of their whereabouts, you are asked to call police on 101 and quote the relevant reference number beneath the picture. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111. In some instances you may be eligible to claim a reward. Join our WhatsApp news community here for the latest breaking news
