Since then it's had a huge impact: 12,524 appeals have been listed and 3,589 arrests made. To mark 10 years of our Most Wanted gallery, three vans will be travelling 800 miles between them on a tour through England, Wales and Scotland. Each van will broadcast the faces of individuals wanted in the areas they visit.
