Troy Howe, 44, formerly of Spencer Place, Chapeltown, has not been seen since he was sentenced to jail for harassment last year.

The faces of the five men will be displayed on a big screen in Victoria Gardens, in front of Leeds Art Gallery, on Saturday as part of a nationwide tour by Crimestoppers.

Lord Ashcroft, founder and chair of Crimestoppers, said: “Most Wanted continues to be a success a decade after we launched it and we wanted to celebrate this milestone.

“A huge number of those who have been listed on the website have been arrested over the years and we hope this Most Wanted tour of the UK will increase that number.

“The digital screens will be hitting the streets, possibly going in to the cities and towns where these suspects are hiding.”

Gemma Wilson, the charity’s Yorkshire and Humberside regional manager, added: “Most Wanted appeals to the nation’s ‘arm chair’ detectives – those who want to help fight crime from the safety of their own home and, above all else, anonymously.

“It was quite ground-breaking when it first launched as the first national online source of wanted individuals and it continues to be an important tool for UK law enforcement today.”
