He is suspected of being involved in a high-profile drug trafficking plot and is believed to have lived in the Netherlands.
But he’s not the only Merseyside fugitive who has been on the National Crime Agency’s (NCA) police and investigative records for many years.
Despite regular calls, there are still several high-profile cases that the police would like to resolve.
The list includes baby face murder suspect David Ungi, who spent nearly five years on the run after 18-year-old Vinny Waddington was shot in Garston.
Another Merseyside name on the list is Kevin Parle, wanted for two murders in Liverpool.
The Spanish Costa del Sol and Amsterdam have long been common haunts for Merseyside fugitives.
The large ex-pat community on the Costa del Sol makes it an ideal place to blend in, especially with the region, like Amsterdam, popular with British tourists.
The historic criminal ties between Merseyside and southern Spain and Amsterdam, two important trading and transit posts in the international drug and gun trade, mean that there are also networks that can support someone on the run.
Another recent achievement was the capture of Dominic McInally, 29, who was detained when police raided Casa Masa in Marbella earlier this year.
The fugitive Formby is accused of being the leader of a massive drug plot that is expected to collect over a million pounds a month.
McInally had spent six years on the run after police found six kilograms of cocaine hidden in a car stopped in Crosby.
These are now the main outstanding names on the list of “most wanted” who have been hiding for many years.
David Ungi is wanted for murder, attempted assault causing serious bodily harm and conspiracy to supply heroin.
In July 2015, David Ungi and two others were in a vehicle on Banks Road in Garston, Liverpool, which police said struck a motorcycle carrying two men.
A single shot of a 12-gauge shotgun was fired, causing one man fatal injuries and the other injured.
The murder victim was teenager Garston Vinny Waddington.
Ungi is also said to be involved in the illegal distribution of controlled drugs in the Liverpool area.
The 26-year-old – who also has the nickname of David Riccio – is described as 5 feet. He has blue eyes and speaks with a Liverpool accent.
Kevin Thomas Parle is wanted in connection with the Liverpool murders of 16-year-old Liam Kelly in 2004 and Lucy Hargreaves in 2005.
Talks is also known as hemp.
He is described as stocky, 195cm tall and with short red hair.
Liverpool man Mark Quinn is wanted by Scottish police on suspicion of providing amphetamine.
Between August 2013 and April 2014, Quinn was allegedly involved in an organized crime group involved in the production, transportation and distribution of amphetamines with a market value of more than £ 11 million.
Quinn, who is now 56 years old, is described as being 5 feet 9 inches tall, tall and with short brown hair.
Michael Paul needed
Liverpool man Michael Paul Moogan is said to be linked to a Rotterdam cafe raided in 2013 as part of a series of coordinated strikes in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.
It is suspected that the cafe served as a front for an operations center for international drug traffickers where they could meet for negotiations with cartels and to arrange financing and transportation of huge quantities of drugs.
It is alleged that in 2013 Moogan was involved in a conspiracy to import cocaine into the United Kingdom.
He has blue eyes and a cross tattoo and a large crucifix on his left arm.
The public is cautioned by the National Crime Agency (NCA) not to contact any of the people on this list.
Instead, you should call an independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, at 0800 555 111, if you know where a wanted fugitive is.
