I don't think there's an easy way to find one... I was pretty lucky i guess, I found one when i was randomly walking around only 10min after getting the challenge...

Best thing to do is to try to finish everything you have in both cities and pay close attention to your map since it's very easy to miss them. Oh and make sure to tackle them, killing them doesn't count.

Unless there is some trick/technique I'm not aware of, you just have to wait & keep trying unfortunately!

I'm 25+ hours in and have only seen 2 so far...

I'm 50+ hours in and have only seen 2. One I ignored since I was on a mission and the other I accidentally killed (both in the 1st half of the game). The Thief challenges are the last thing I have to do to get the completionist achievement, but this task is standing in my way right now. I spent about half an hour trying two different methods mentioned in this forum, but have had no luck. I'll be trying more vigorously later today.

Shit. I saw two and had my fist out and hit X on both. I didn't understand what I did wrong. I better see another soon.

I just caught one in New York after waiting a long time. I saw a suspicious guy running near me, but there was no special courier symbol (over his head or on the map). I had to get realy close in order for it to appear. Then some guards started chasing me including the ones that run faster. It took more than 5 minutes to finally catch the courier once I spotted him.

Do you think they stop spawning after the end?

Because the British guys are gone...

I caught my courier after completing the game, but it does appear that the frequency in which they spawn is much less.

Okay... so thanks to a helpful tip by Auguscht28, I may have figured out a way to track down a courier fairly easily. He said he found one at an intersection in South Boston (after beating the story and at 99% completion) so I wandered around that part of town and a courier spawned here:



I was standing at the exact spot where my player icon is (not the "set marker" thing) and the courier spawned right by where he's marked on the map there (by the little red icon). I was just moving around slowly (walking... not running), and I took that photo immediately after he appeared. For what it's worth, it happened during daytime in the game. I ran after him for a while and used a rope dart on him, but unfortunately I did that by a bunch of other guards... All hell broke loose after that and the courier got away.

The reason I think this might be a solution? I went right back to that spot, slowly walked around again at that intersection (and by this time the sun had gone down in the game), and within a few minutes another courier spawned at the EXACT same spot. I ran after him, waited until we weren't around any other guards (after what happened to me the first time), got close enough for a tackle, pressed circle, laid him out... and it registered for a completed portion of the challenge. VICTORY.

If anyone else needs this part of the challenge, please head to this same spot in Boston and see if you can confirm if this is a definite spawn point or if I'm just a lucky SOB.

Good luck!
Yes, that area does work. that's how i found my courier.

The area in South Boston described in the previous post works great. I just blended into any of the groups around the intersection and waited. A courier ran by every 5-10 minutes. Just be sure to not have any weapon equipped, and remember to hit B to "catch" the courier. Hitting X to tackle the courier will not count as "catching the courier" in the Thieves Club Challenges, even though you are catching the courier.

Thanks for posting Annalie. I had a courier spawn early today and didn't realize he was a courier. I saw he had a red thing over his head so I sent a recruit to kill him. Yeah... not gonna make that mistake again.
