Merseyside Police is appealing for the public's help to trace a 31-year-old man from Slovakia who is wanted on a European Arrest Warrant.

Marek Horvath is wanted on warrant after failing to appear at Westminster Magistrates Court on Thursday, 13 October 2011.

Proceedings are continuing to seek to extradite him to Slovakia in connection with an alleged fraud case there.

Horvath is described as 6ft tall, with brown hair and of a proportionate build. He has tattoos on both arms, including a tattoo of a skull on his right arm.

He is believed to have links to the Bootle and Tuebrook areas.

Anyone who has seen Marek Horvath, or has any information about his whereabouts, is asked to call officers on 0151 777 3835 or via the police 101 number. If they prefer, people can also contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
