BUFFALO, NY-- The local man who claims to own half of Facebook... has apparently left the country!
Two overseas newspapers say Paul Ceglia from Wellsville, is now living in Ireland.
He spent time there growing up and has family on the Island nation.
The Wellsville Daily Reporter says Ceglia emailed the paper and confirmed his move.
Ceglia reportedly wrote -- "as you know Zuckergerg has seemingly stopped at nothing to try to slander me during this case so far and part of that has been their use of private investigators not just to investigate me, but far beyond that to harass me and my family daily."
Ceglia's case goes back before a judge in federal court in Buffalo later this month.
