Red Bull scion Vorayuth “Boss” Yoovidhya, wanted for a hit-and-run case from 2012, is believed to be in Austria.
Mr Sanya said the search for Mr Vorayuth is still on, and that the police believe the fugitive is living in Austria.
Mr Vorayuth postponed his court appearances more than five times before fleeing abroad.
While he was overseas, a speeding charge against him was dropped after its one-year statute of limitations expired. A second charge — failing to stop to help a crash victim — expired on Sept 3, 2017.
Two charges remain active — the first was for narcotics use after cocaine was found in his system following a drug test. That charge will expire on Sept 3 next year.
The second charge — reckless driving causing death — will expire in 2027.
