WHITE LAKE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A ceramic figurines dealer has disappeared amid a police and FBI investigation of whether he defrauded at least 100 eBay auction buyers.

The customers say their purchases from a December online auction were never delivered by the seller, Stewart Richardson, 60, who disappeared Jan. 17, police said.

The Lladro's, Hummel and Wee Forest Folk ceramic figurines the customers bought were worth tens of thousands of dollars total. No charges have been filed.

Richardson left his White Lake business — Retired Figurines Exchange — after reportedly withdrawing more than $200,000, police said. His wife filed a missing persons report.

EBay spokesman Kevin Pursglove said Richardson had built a good reputation at the auction service.
