Red Bull heir, Vorayuth "Boss" Yoovidhya, failed to appear before police to face charges over an alleged hit and run case that killed a police officer almost five year ago, prompting the Thai prosecutors to seek his arrest.

Prayuth Petchkhun, a deputy spokesman for the attorney general's office said,"If it turns out that he is in Thailand, Thai police can find him and arrest him. But if he is abroad we will then begin the extradition process."

"The suspect must meet prosecutors as scheduled. If he does not, it would mean he has the intention of delaying and evading the case and we will proceed with requesting an arrest warrant from the court," Somnuek Siangkong, another spokesman for the attorney general's office, said.
