The case of self-proclaimed Facebook co-owner Paul Ceglia never fails to disappoint when it comes to unusual events.

PaulCeglia650The case of self-proclaimed Facebook co-owner Paul Ceglia never fails to disappoint when it comes to unusual events.

Reuters reported that Ceglia — who filed a lawsuit in 2010 against Facebook and its co-founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, claiming that he possessed a contract that entitled him to ownership of one-half of Facebook — is nowhere to be found.

The alleged contract between Ceglia and Zuckerberg was deemed fraudulent in 2012, and Ceglia was charged with fraud shortly thereafter.

His trial is slated to begin May 4, but Reuters reported that when representatives from the U.S. Marshals Service went to Ceglia’s home in Wellsville, N.Y., this past Sunday to check on him, they found his electronic tracking ankle bracelet, but he was nowhere to be found.

Robert Fogg, Ceglia’s latest lawyer, told Reuters he has not spoken with his client, adding:

He has always been concerned with justice. He has always been concerned about if he’d get a fair trial.

U.S. District Judge Vernon Broderick scheduled a hearing Tuesday, according to Reuters, most likely to address Ceglia’s disappearance.
