Earlier this month, the 42-year-old stuntman left a court-ordered facility, which prompted a police search. Margera reportedly told the manager of the facility that he was not satisfied with its services and then left. He was found at a nearby hotel two days later and returned to the LifeSkills facility.

But authorities are once again searching the skateboarder's whereabouts after he made a sudden departure from the clinic over the weekend.

As reported by TMZ, sources told the outlet the reality star was last seen at around 5:30 PM on Saturday, June 25, in Deerfield Beach, Florida, after he left the rehab center without permission.

Broward County police is urging the public to share any information they may have with regards to Margera's current location.

The TV personality had previously agreed voluntarily to return to the clinic after he was found on June 13. A crisis intervention team escorted him back to the clinic.

Margera's manager reported him missing after he told the clinic manager that he planned to check himself into another rehab in the vicinity before leaving the premises in a black sedan.

He is believed to have told staff at the establishment that he was "unhappy" and wanted to "split".

Last month, the skate performer broke his wrist and elbow in an accident and went on to blame the rehab for not setting up physical therapy sessions for him.

He said it was the tenth time he'd injured his wrist and that he wouldn't be taking any pain medication while he recovered - lest he undermine his progress in rehab.

Margera also revealed last month that he had completed a one-year inpatient alcohol and drug rehab program in Florida.

Speaking to TMZ at the time, Margera explained that he would spend some months as an outpatient while staying at a Boca Raton apartment near the facility.

His wife Nikki and their four-year-old son Phoenix had been living with him in the apartment as he took part in his outpatient sessions.

Last year, it was reported that his wife had filed to obtain custody of Phoenix - but she did not file for divorce.

According the custody filing, she would allow her husband supervised visits but wanted to okay any monitor he selected.

Earlier this year, Page Six reported that Margera had agreed to settle his wrongful termination lawsuit against Johnny Knoxville, Spike Jonze and Paramount after saying he was on the receiving end of "inhumane treatment" when he was fired from Jackass 4.
