Wanted persons often travel to another country to try to evade justice. When requested by a member country, we can publish a Red Notice to alert police worldwide to a wanted fugitive.
Missing persons can also travel abroad, either voluntarily or involuntary such as in a parental abduction of a child. Here we can publish a Yellow Notice for a missing person.
These Notices are global alerts, sent to all our member countries.
Most Notices are for police use only, but some of them are published on this website so members of the public can help police to find the people concerned.
If you have information on anyone you see in a Red or Yellow Notice on this website, you should either:
- contact the local police in your country, who will then get in touch with INTERPOL, or;
- contact us directly via the link on each notice.
