(UPDATED: He's Gone.) Breaking News: What's Up With Wayne Dolcefino and Channel 13?

Absent during sweeps, bio missing from KTRK's site.
It's well-known that Channel 13's Wayne Dolcefino has long been hounding Precinct 6 Constable Victor Trevino, so many thought it singularly strange that Ted Oberg broke the story of the veteran lawman's indictment last week.

He was AWOL through October sweeps. Indeed, he has not been on the air for six or seven weeks at all.

And if you click on Wayne Dolcefino's name under some stories on the station's website, you get this message:

"We didn't find any results for 'wayne dolcefino'. Explore more."

So we did. We clicked on the link to his official bio, and got this:

PAGE NOT FOUND We are sorry, but the URL you requested could not be found. The page you are looking for may have been renamed, moved, or deleted.

Hairballs Undercover pledges to stay atop this story. We will post more details as they come in.

UPDATE, 5:33 pm. We've received multiple reports that Dolcefino's departure from KTRK was announced on the five o'clock newscast.

I HAVE KNOWN WAYNE SINCE THE 70'S WHEN WE BOTH WORKED OUT OF THE PRESS ROOM ON THE 3RD FLOOR OF THE OLD COP SHOP ON REISNER. HOUSTON NEEDS WAYNE, I DO HOPE KTRK LEADERSHIP DO EVERY THING POSSIBLE TO KEEP HIM BUSTING CROOKS, ESPECIALLY THE POLITICAL KIND HERE IN HARRIS COUNTY. CONSTABLE VICTOR TREVINO IS ONE BIG BANDIDO WHO NEEDS TO BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE - AND POSSIBLY DO SOME TIME IN THE JOINT. CHECK OUT MY REPORT ON TREVINO ASSOCIATION WITH CONVICTED HEROIN PUSHER RUBEN GUERRA - THIS INFORMATION THE GRAND JURY DOES NOT KNOW OF THIS AND OTHER SHENANIGANS I INCLUDED IN MY REPORT facebook.com/J.j.Garcia

I saw him at Galveston Mardi Gras one time wearing a velour jogging suit. Reminded me of George Costanza.

On the 10 pm news, Dave Ward said  "In my opinion, Wayne is the best at what he does." That part seemed ad lived.

Wow, someone has already put his departure from KTRK in his Wiki. Someone once claimed on Wikipedia that Wayne was an "Asian baby rapist" and married to Dave Ward. I interviewed him about it for the blog and he was a good sport about it. I think he was great about 70 percent of the time, and other times a little ridiculous, like when he was grilling Metro bus drivers about how they got to ride buses for free.

Those other 2 anchors that quit live said "..we were expected to do somewhat unbalanced news, politically, in general.." I wouldn't be surprised if this was the case also.

THIS POST IS SO STUPID AND SILLY - WAYNE IS A SERIOUS INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER. WE SHOULD BE HAPPY WE HAVE WAYNE HERE IN HOUSTON BUSTING CROOKED POLITICIANS LIKE VICTOR TREVINO.

 @Serena Just being pedantic here...while that is a better appreciation of the man and his work, there is not much more information about his departure from the station there.

I sense hostility. Did you and Vic have a bad break up?
