A warrant has been issued for Ethan Couch. Investigators say his parole officer hasn't been able to reach him or his mother for several days.

Couch was 16 when he slammed into a crowd of people in 2013, killing four of them near Fort Worth.

He was given 10 years' probation after his attorneys argued Couch lived life as a rich kid whose parents gave him no boundaries or consequences.
