Interpol called on the public to help trace a suspected British paedophile today over claims he kidnapped two teenage boys for sex.
Commercial pilot Daren Elarmo, 40, was among 26 fugitives in the sights of detectives at the international law enforcement agency.
Officers launched the second stage of a global manhunt today, aimed at redoubling efforts to catch some of the most elusive suspected criminals.
Elarmo, also known as Jones, is wanted by officers in the United States investigating the grooming of two boys via social networking sites between 2005 and 2008.
Police said the aeroplane and helicopter pilot visited Britain last year, but may now be living in Spain, possibly among the expatriate community.
Other cases highlighted once again by Interpol included gangsters, murderers, people traffickers, thieves and sophisticated fraudsters.
Those with a British connection included:
:: Romanian Ioan Clamparu, 41, is suspected of masterminding an international people smuggling operation in which women were forced into prostitution in Spain. He has contacts in Britain and Ireland.
:: Pole Marcin Balcewicz, 29, known as Balas, is wanted for murdering a man with an iron bar in his homeland in 2006. He has not been seen since and may be on the run in Britain.
:: Former financial director Jason Holland, 42, may be hiding in Britain from South African police investigating a substantial 2008 fraud involving the Sentula mining company. He has joint British/South African nationality.
:: Briton Christopher More, 32, is wanted for murder and false imprisonment over the death of a man fatally beaten at a farmhouse in Cheshire in June 2003. He may be on the run in Spain.
:: Hungarian company director Janos Szpevak, 33, is thought to be hiding in Britain from police investigating a sophisticated financial fraud in his home country. He has also travelled to Belgium and Sweden.
:: Irishman John Griffin, 43, known as Fozzy, is wanted by police over the murder of a 23-year-old woman whose body was found in a burned-out caravan in Galway in April 2005. He may be in Britain after faking his death on a cliff top.
The Interpol-led manhunt, dubbed Infra-Red, already led to the arrest of more than 100 wanted people across the globe.
It involves 29 countries and is targeting 450 people suspected of serious offences from murder, to child abuse and drug smuggling.
Martin Cox, of Interpol, said: "The operation has been very successful in locating and arresting a large number of these targets, but what we are now left with are the cases where we have no new information on their whereabouts, which is why we are asking for the public to help.
"It is more likely that someone will recognise one these fugitives from a social networking site or a chat room than spotting them walking down the street, but no matter how a member of the public has the information, we would ask that they pass it on.
"Many of these fugitives will believe they have 'got away with it' and that they are no longer wanted.
"What this operation and Interpol are clearly showing is that this is never the case and that law enforcement will continue to search for these wanted persons for as long as it takes."
