DALLAS - Authorities say they've received hundreds of leads in their search for a Texas teen who disappeared after video surfaced showing he may have violated his probation from a deadly drunken car crash.

Tarrant County Sheriff Dee Anderson said Monday that the tips about 18-year-old Ethan Couch's disappearance are useful but can be a "double-edged sword" because they can lead investigators down dead ends.

Anderson says he thinks Couch's mother, Tonya Couch, is helping him avoid capture and that they may be travelling in her black pickup truck.

Ethan Couch killed four people in the drunken 2013 crash but was sentenced to only probation after his lawyer argued that he suffered from "affluenza" and blamed his irresponsible lifestyle on being coddled too much by his wealthy parents.
