Steven Gerrard Relative On Most Wanted List
A relative of England football captain Steven Gerrard is wanted by police over an alleged £60m cocaine trafficking plot.
Robert Gerrard, 50, is said to be linked to a Rotterdam cafe that was used as a meeting place for drug gangs to negotiate with international cartels.
Gerrard is thought to be a second cousin of the Liverpool and England player, but is known in the family as "Uncle Bobby".
Gerrard is on a list of eight British fugitives allegedly hiding in Holland and published by the National Crime Agency and the Crimestoppers charity.
They are launching a Most Wanted appeal for the public's help in locating, arresting and extraditing them to the UK.
Gerrard is described as white, 5ft 8in tall, with blue eyes and brown hair, a Liverpool accent and a two-inch curved scar on the right side of his face.
Two other Liverpool men, Michael Moogan and Mark Fitzgibbon, are wanted for alleged supply, processing and trafficking of vast quantities of drugs.
Rezgar Zengana, 31, is wanted for jumping bail after conviction for posing as a taxi driver to rape a 25-year-old woman in Glasgow - he has been on the run for six years.
It is the third fugitive appeal in the Netherlands and follows a series of similar campaigns in Spain and Cyprus, where 61 out of 85 wanted suspects have been arrested.
Crimestoppers chair and founder Lord Ashcroft said: "I hope these campaigns give a clear message to British fugitives that escaping abroad does not mean you can escape justice for your crimes."
Thomas Tooth, 30, is wanted for unlawful wounding after a fight in a Manchester pub in which his alleged victim was injured and left with permanent eye damage. He has tattoos and scars on both knees.
Liam Fynes, 56, from Manchester, has been on the run for eight years and is suspected of possessing ammunition and drugs.
James Tarrant, 58, from Essex, is wanted for possessing drugs, a handgun, cash and body armour. He was arrested and charged in 2009, but jumped bail and was convicted in his absence.
Convicted drug supplier Mark Liscott, 53, from Birmingham, was released from prison on licence, but is believed to have joined drugs gangs in Nottingham and London.
The NCA's Head of International Operations Hank Cole said: "Many believe they can use the Netherlands as a base to continue their illegal activities, which still have an impact on the UK, but they are finding out it is not a safe haven."
Anyone with information on the fugitives is urged to contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or at crimestoppers-uk.org.
