George Zimmerman has lost his legal representation and his attorneys have withdrawn, has learned.

Zimmerman's attorney held a news conference on Tuesday in which he explained they have "lost track" of him and haven't spoken with the neighborhood watch volunteer since Sunday.

Interestingly, Zimmerman set up a website on Sunday asking his "supporters" for monetary donations to help with his legal defense and living expenses because of his "forced inability to maintain employment."

“On Sunday February 26th, I was involved in a life altering event which led me to become the subject of intense media coverage. As a result of the incident and subsequent media coverage, I have been forced to leave my home, my school, my employer, my family and ultimately, my entire life. This website's sole purpose is to ensure my supporters they are receiving my full attention without any intermediaries," he posted on the site.

“I have created a Paypal account solely linked on this website as I would like to provide an avenue to thank my supporters personally and ensure that any funds provided are used only for living expenses and legal defense, in lieu of my forced inability to maintain employment. I will also personally, maintain accountability of all funds received. I reassure you, every donation is appreciated.”

As previously reported, Zimmerman's attorney Craig Sonner claimed that his client was returning to his vehicle when Trayvon Martin allegedly attacked him and that he suffered a broken nose, and had to shoot the teenager in self defense.
