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.
