As investigations on the possible whereabouts of Ethan Couch continue, authorities reveal the latest updates on his case.

The Texas teen, who famously avoided jail time for a deadly drunk driving accident by claiming "affluenza" –– wealthy entitlement clouding his judgment –– in the defense case, allegedly fled his home, along with his mother, after video footage possibly revealed a recent probation violation.

The video, posted by a Twitter user, seemingly captures Couch partaking in a game of beer pong with friends.

Suspecting that Couch and his mother disappeared several days ago (the family home was found empty and the 18-year-old had removed his GPS monitor), police have widened their search, believing that Couch fled the country.

"We're working every angle we can work," said Tarrant County Sheriff Dee Anderson. "I've got a bunch of my fugitive guys working on it."

Anderson also shared that if he had a top 10 most wanted list, Couch would take the number one slot.
