    As Trevor you'll eventually meet a woman named Maude as a Strangers & Freaks mission, shown as a question mark, ?, on the map. She wants you to bring her escaped convicts, for cash. She sends you regular emails with photos and last known locations.

    The first one, Ralph Ostrowski, is down in the quarry where the big quarry truck is. DO NOT kill him, simply chase him in a car, stop him by shooting his tyres or trashing his car. I was lucky enough for him to get stuck behind a U section of barrier. Drag him out of the car, a cutscene starts, he surrenders and gets in your car as a passenger, take him back to Maude, the achievement will pop!

    WARNING: If you use guns too much you can end up getting a wanted level, this will make it harder, try to shoot his tyres when you're still in the quarry area, or use a weapon with suppressor that you can shoot out of a car, like the pistol.

    The location of Ralph is in the image below, courtesy of GamePressure.com:

    alpaca777Tires - Tyres it's all the same. To get back to this solution. If you finished game and and missed this, hopefully you played with auto-save. Go back to around 25-30% completion and use method described here or disable bounty's vehicle in any way possible. As it does not count toward 100% completion your in the clear getting cheevo.

    Hamfam9598I must have deleted the text or email but went to the quarry and he was there as people described.

    K1LLERLOOKSI beat the game, played additional side missions, bought most Los Santos and still can’t get this email/message to trigger or find Maude. Looks like this may be a potential glitch?

    KrankiPantzJust a heads up to say the online equivalent doesn't pop this achievement (well, it didn't for me, anyway)..

    Last night, I was playing GTA online and a Maude bounty mission came through via the in game mobile phone. I found and returned the target to Maude alive, but the achievement didn't unlock.

    TonyTwoSteaksWorked for me. Late in game went to quarry and it triggered mission and I got achievement.

    thatNoseyParkerCame here looking for info re not getting email (will test just going there at somepoint).
    But lmao at that guy having a fit at someone saying tyres instead of tires... and then very incorrectly trying to say things weren’t British.
    As aforementioned, this site is most definitely owned and based in Britain, and this game was also made in Britain (as well as getting British-specific tax relief)!

    Iggsy81I had the issue with the cops intervening and i found a heaps easier way to do it. By then you have a sniper rifle with Trev, so what i did was before approaching the target, shot out the "tyres" ;) of his car before he could even get in. When i did this he first tried to get in but then decided to run on foot. He's then easily caught and delivered, no fuss with the cops.

    EskimosoundI've completed these missions years ago.
    I've come back to the game...
    Is there any way of the starting these missions through the game menus or do I have to start a brand new game...
    I'm so close to completion I don't want to have to restart if I don't have to.. anyone know?

    Dragonbreath825After completing the mission “Bury the Hatchet” I went to the location without having the email still and found him there just like normal

    oHIGHxINxAxBOXo"TonyTwoSteak" mentioned going to the quarry in order to trigger the event, this worked perfectly for me. I found the bounty jumper and brought him back for the achievement.
