Decided on April 15, 2011
PRESENT: Hunter, Jr., J.P., Schoenfeld, Torres, JJ
Appeal from judgment of conviction (Marc Whiten, J.), rendered January 4, 2010, dismissed.
Since defendant is not incarcerated and all efforts by assigned appellate counsel to locate and communicate with him have been unsuccessful, defendant has demonstrated a lack of interest in his appeal (see People v Dubrey, 217 AD2d 707 ; People v Cullum, 170 AD2d 524 ; People v Jinks, 140 AD2d 371 ). In light of the foregoing, the application by defendant's counsel for leave to withdraw as counsel is granted, and the appeal is dismissed as abandoned (see People v Dubrey, 217 AD2d at 707; People v McCaffrey, 174 AD2d 579 ; People v Dyson, 28 Misc 3d 129[A], 2010 NY Slip Op 51219[U] ).
THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE COURT.
