IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF VIRGINIA Richmond Division may 2 6 201/ ANTHONY BADU SAKYI, Petitioner, Civil Action No. 3;16CV683-HEH V. JEFFREY CRAWFORD, et al., Respondents. MEMORANDUM OPINION (Dismissing § 2241 Petition Without Prejudice) By Memorandum Order entered on September 12, 2016, the Court filed Sakyi's § 2241 Petition. (ECF No. 2, at 1.) By that same Memorandum Order, the Court explained to Sakyi that he "must immediately advise the Court of his new address in the event he is transferred, released, or otherwise relocated while the action is pending." {Id at 2.) Sakyi was warned that failure to keep the Court apprised of his current address would result in the dismissal of the action. (Id) On May 12, 2017, the Clerk mailed Sakyi a Notice and Consent Form to Proceed Before a United States Magistrate Judge. (ECF No. II.) On May 19, 2017, the Clerk's letter was returned to the Court by the United States Postal Service marked "RETURN TO SENDER" and "NOT DELIVERABLE AS ADDRESSED." (ECF No. 14.) Sakyi's failure to keep the Court apprised of his current address indicates his lack of interest in prosecuting the present action. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(b). Accordingly, the action will be dismissed without prejudice. Sakyi's Motion to Execute Action on 28 U.S.C. § 2241 Petition (ECF No. 3) will be denied as moot. An appropriate Order shall accompany this Memorandum Opinion. /s/ ^1 Date: Hiftu Richmond, Virginia HENRY E.I-IUDSON UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
