Pasco deputies are looking for a man who allegedly set an expensive yacht on fire.

Video from October shows the dramatic blaze.

A family tells us they believe Joshua Stewart set the blaze. A warrant for his arrest was just issued, however it is feared he has escaped to Costa Rica.

The family says it has a rocky history with Stewart and they want him to face the punishment for his actions.

Stewart is a former New Port Richey attorney.

If anyone knows any additional information or of him returning to the area they should notify Pasco County Sherriff's office.
