IN THE MATTER OF BRYANNA P. (ANONYMOUS), APPELLANT.
In a proceeding pursuant to Family Court Act article 7, the appeal is from an order of fact-finding and disposition of the Family Court, Dutchess County (Amodeo, J.), dated March 18, 2008, which, after fact-finding and dispositional hearings, upon the appellant's admission to truancy, adjudicated the appellant to be a person in need of supervision, and placed her in the care and custody of the Commissioner of Social Services of the County of Dutchess for a period of up to 12 months. Assigned counsel has submitted a brief in accordance with Anders v California (386 US 738), in which he moves to be relieved of the assignment to prosecute this appeal.

DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the appeal from so much of the order of fact-finding and disposition as placed the appellant in the custody of the Commissioner of Social Services of the County of Dutchess for a period of up to 12 months is dismissed as academic, without costs or disbursements; and it is further,
ORDERED that the order of fact-finding and disposition is affirmed insofar as reviewed, without costs or disbursements.
The appeal from so much of the order of fact-finding and disposition as placed the appellant in the custody of the Commissioner of Social Services of the County of Dutchess for a period of 12 months must be dismissed, as that portion of the order has expired by its own terms (see Matter of Toni Ann O., 56 AD3d 563; Matter of Shamasia M., 4 AD3d 359, 361; Matter of Jonathan G., 278 AD2d 324, 325).
We have reviewed the record and agree with the appellant's assigned counsel that there are no non-frivolous issues which could be raised on appeal. Counsel's application for leave to withdraw as counsel is granted (see Anders v California, 386 US 738; People v Paige, 54 AD2d 631; cf. People v Gonzalez, 47 NY2d 606).
