Spanish police renew appeal to trace Scots ‘most wanted’ fugitive Derek McGraw Ferguson Policia National

Spanish police have issued a fresh appeal to trace a Scottish fugitive wanted in connection with the murder of a barman in Glasgow 15 years ago.

Derek McGraw Ferguson is thought to have fled from Scotland following the shooting of Thomas Cameron outside the Auchinairn Tavern in Bishopbriggs on June 28, 2007.

However, more than a decade of high-profile appeals have failed to turn up any trace of the man.

Ferguson – who is now thought to be in his 50s – is likely to be living under a different name and may be speaking with a different accent in Spain.

Mr Cameron, who was 49 at the time of the murder, is understood to have left the pub in which he worked at around 7pm to speak to two men in the car park opposite a row of shops.

A few minutes later, the dad-of-three was shot and died despite the best efforts of colleagues and customers who rushed outside to his aid after the pair had fled.

In the renewed appeal Spanish force, Policia National, said that Ferguson was “wanted for homicide” and was “dangerous and possibly armed”.

Thomas Cameron was shot dead outside the Auchinairn Tavern in June 2007.

Anyone with information on Ferguson’s whereabouts was urged to get in contact with the force.

Police Scotland released new images showing what Ferguson, who is the subject of an international arrest warrant, may look like now last year.

A reward fund for information was also doubled to £10,000 while a dedicated website to handle tip-offs went live earlier this year.
