MILAN, Italy, Jan. 23 (UPI) -- Fugitive Italian paparazzo Fabrizio Corona has surrendered to police in Portugal, sources close to the investigation told Italian news agency ANSA.

Corona disappeared hours before an appeals court in Italy confirmed his conviction and five-year prison sentence for blackmailing celebrities with compromising photographs, ANSA reported Wednesday.

Police surveillance lost sight of Corona after he entered a gym and apparently slipped out a side exit.

Because he fled the country, two years and 10 months will be added to his sentence, ANSA said.
