An international arrest warrant has been issued to billionaire heir to Red Bull, Vorayuth Yoovidhya by Interpol

Interpol has issued an international request for the arrest of the billionaire heir to the Red Bull energy drink fortune as they step up the hunt for the fugitive wanted in a 2012 hit-and-run incident that left a traffic policeman dead in Bangkok

Thai police spokesman Krissana Pattanacharoen said that his department had been notified by the international police network of the "Red Notice," a worldwide request to find and provisionally arrest an individual, pending extradition.

Vorayuth Yoovidhya, the 32-year old grandson of the Thai co-founder of the Red Bull brand skipped Thailand at the end of April, just before authorities issued an arrest warrant after he repeatedly failed to meet with prosecutors since the September 2012 crash. He flew to Singapore on one of the family's private jets but his trail has since gone cold.

The Red Notice goes out to all 190 Interpol member countries.

Among other measures, it alerts border officials, in theory making international travel more likely to result in arrest.
