The former Playboy model has gone on the run after she was sentenced to jail in Bosnia for laying a honey trap in the attempted murder of a gangster, a court said on September 6, 2016

The model (30) was convicted earlier this year of arranging to meet a mafia boss, Djordje Zdrale, for a date and then betraying him to his rival Darko Elez, who then attempted to have him killed.

 Zdrale was wounded in the assassination attempt in 2006 but he managed to escape with his life. The model was charged as an accomplice to the plot.

A court handed down a two-and-a-half year jail sentence in March and an appeal was ruled out in July.

According to court documents, Bosnian prosecutors said the former model had links to "one of the largest groups of organised crime".

Slobodanka Tosic failed to show up to serve her sentence and is now the subject of an international manhunt.

She was arrested in Croatia last year and was extradited back to Bosnia on an international arrest warrant.

However, she failed to report to the authorities after she was convicted.

Zdrale, who is serving a 20 year sentence for the murder of a police officer, but was brought from his prison cell to testify against Miss Tosic.

Miss Tosic is well known for her modelling career in her homeland and has appeared on the Bosnian version of Survivor.

She was also crowned Miss Bosnia at the age of 19.
