Merseyside Police are appealing for help to trace a 30-year-old man who is wanted on a European Arrest Warrant for the murder of PC Neil Doyle.
Timmy Donovan, who is also known as Timmy O’Sullivan, is originally from the Huyton area and has connections with Childwall in Liverpool. He is understood to have left the country at about 8.30pm on Friday, 19 December, through the Eurotunnel and officers believe he was driving a five door grey Mercedes A180 (registration YE62 NWG).
Donovan is described as 5ft 8in tall, broad build, with dark brown hair and blue eyes and has a Liverpool accent. Detectives believe that Donovan is in Europe, possibly Spain, and are working with the National Crime Agency, Europol and European police forces in a bid to locate him.
Donovan is the latest in a long line of fugitives being sought across Europe, and will hopefully soon join the ever growing list of suspects brought to justice for their crimes.
In Spain last year, the Guardia Civil arrested a total of 8,952 people who had fled from justice and wanted by national or international authorities, assisting law enforcers in 84 countries to bring fugitives to court.
Of those wanted suspects arrested, 5 were originally from the United Kingdom, although the largest group were from Romania, where 20 fugitives were returned. In addition, there were 8 from Italy, 6 from Morocco, 5 from France, 4 from Russia, 4 from Lithuania and 3 from Germany.
As for the countries looking to locate missing fugitives, the United Kingdom successfully received 3 wanted fugitives, whereas France led the table for warrants executed with 15, followed by Romania with 14, Italy with 10, the United States with 8, Germany with 7, Belgium with 6, Lithuania with 3, Morocco, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Switzerland and Venezuela had 2 each, and Portugal, Bulgaria, Sweden, Denmark and Hungary all saw 1 person returned.
As for the locations where they were found, Madrid, Tarragona and Málaga was home to 8 fugitives each, just ahead of Alicante with 7, and the Balearics and Barcelona had 5 each. The Guardia Civil believe that the fugitives choose immigrant reach locations such as the Costa del Sol and Costa Blanca, with the belief that they will blend in more within communities of their own nationalities, often with false identification.
In return, the Guardia Civil also collaborated in 8 international operations to have fugitives returned to this country, 4 of those detained being in the top ten most wanted criminals list released last year by the Guardia Civil.
As for Donovan, anybody who spots him or knows of his whereabouts are urged to contact the police immediately. The 112 emergency line in Spain has operators who speak English, and Crimestoppers can be contacted on a Spanish telephone number too, which is 900 555 111, and is answered in the UK by Crimestoppers’ call agents who also have a translation service available upon request.
People can also pass on information anonymously via the online Giving Information form on Crimestoppers’ website, which is crimestoppers-uk.org.
Those in the UK should call 0800 555 111 or visit the website.
