A trial date had been set for January but it was cancelled when the pair left the area.

Officials now believe they have left the country and could have travelled to Mexico.

According to the Houston Chronicle, warning signs started to appear when authorities noticed the pair had bought the yacht with $20,000 cash the week before it sank.

The vessel was left in the water for a month before it was retrieved to regulations stipulating it must stay in the place it submerged for 20 days to allow the owners to return.

They had been staying on the boat at the Watergate Yachting Center, but had been asked to leave due to disturbances.

1. What a bunch on morons. I hope they take those kids away.

A $20,000 boat with 9 people on board? What could possibly go wrong?

If they really stole a million, they should have gotten a better boat. A captain wouldn't have hurt either.
