Teenager Ethan Couch made national news when his attorney argued he suffered from “affluenza,” a condition stemming from being coddled so much that he lost his sense of responsibility, CBS News reports. 

Now federal officials are helping Texas deputes search for Couch, who was 16 years old when his drunken driving crash killed four pedestrians.

In 2013, Couch was sentenced to 10 years of probation, but now he and his mother are missing.

Tarrant County Sheriff Dee Anderson suggested that Couch may have hit the left the country, making him a top fugitive.

A warrant was issued for his arrest.

“I hate to say I told you so, but I told you so,” Anderson said. “I said, we’re going to see him again. He’s going to be back in this system.”

His disappearance follows a video that show what appears to be Couch drinking, which would be a probation violation.
