Officers believe the brothers are in the North, but say they have links to the Republic of Ireland and the orad haulage and shipping industries
They're urging the brothers to hand themselves in.
Yesterday the PSNI stopped a lorry believed to be connected to the Hughes brothers, which was then subsequently seized.
Detective Chief Inspector Daniel Stoten has urged anyone who knows where they are to tell police urgently:
"Ronan and Christopher hand yourselves into the PSNI. We need you both to come forward and assist in this investigation."
"We urge anyone that's been in contact with them, or has any information about where they are, to get in contact with us."
