C/A No.: 1:18-2779-CMC-SVH
REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION
Bobby Robbins ("Plaintiff"), proceeding pro se, filed this action on October 12, 2018. [ECF No. 1]. On October 24, 2018, the undersigned issued an order and notice to Plaintiff detailing deficiencies in his complaint and permitting him until November 7, 2018, to file an amended complaint. [ECF No. 8]. On October 31, 2018, the court's October 24, 2018 order was returned as undeliverable. [ECF No. 10]. The returned envelope states "Vacant" and "Unable to Forward." Id. Plaintiff has failed to keep the court apprised of his address, and as a result, the court has no means of contacting him concerning his case.
Based on the foregoing, it is recommended that this action be dismissed with prejudice, in accordance with Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b). The Clerk is directed to send this Report and Recommendation to Plaintiff at his last known address. If Plaintiff notifies the court within the time set for filing objections to this Report and Recommendation that he wishes to continue with this case and provides a current address, the Clerk is directed to vacate this Report and Recommendation and return the file to the undersigned for further handling. If, however, no objections are filed, the Clerk shall forward this Report and Recommendation to the district judge for disposition.
IT IS SO RECOMMENDED. November 2, 2018
Columbia, South Carolina
