Details of Incident

Murder of Thomas Cameron in Auchinairn – renewed appeal for information about the whereabouts of Derek Ferguson

Crimestoppers reward increased to £10,000
Dedicated website available for public information

Fifteen years since Thomas Cameron was murdered in Bishopbriggs, Police Scotland is renewing its appeal to anyone who has any knowledge about the current whereabouts of Derek Ferguson to get in touch with any information that could help track him down.

Ferguson is wanted in connection with the murder, which took place outside a public house in Auchinairn Road, on Thursday, 28 June 2007 and an international warrant remains in place for his arrest.

An increased reward of up to £10,000, being offered by the independent charity, Crimestoppers, is available to anyone who contacts them anonymously with information which helps lead to the arrest of Ferguson.

A dedicated website giving members of the public access to a form to send information directly to the Enquiry Team has been set–up. It can be accessed below and anyone submitting information can select to remain anonymous.

Officers leading the investigation believe the fugitive may be in Spain. He is unlikely to be known by his original name or speaking with a Scottish accent.

Detective Chief Superintendent Paul Livingstone said:

“Despite 15 years having past, Police Scotland’s investigation into the murder of Thomas Cameron in 2007 continues.  It is in the public interest for all efforts to be made to bring the person responsible for the murder to justice.

“Our extensive enquiries have never ceased, which underlines our unwavering commitment to tracking down Derek Ferguson.

“We are re-iterating our appeal for anyone who has any knowledge of his whereabouts to get in touch with any information which could help us trace him.

“I welcome the offer of the increased reward by Crimestoppers of up to £10,000 for information which leads to his arrest.

“If you know Derek Ferguson or have any information which will help us locate him, please come forward. Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could be of significant assistance. If you are unsure whether information you know will assist our enquiries, please just share it with us.

“If you don’t want to talk to my investigation team, you can speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
