A party appearing without counsel must keep the court and all parties apprised of his current address. L.R. 183(b). If mail directed to a plaintiff is returned by the postal service and plaintiff fails to notify the court and opposing parties within 63 days thereafter of his current address, the court may dismiss the action without prejudice for failure to prosecute.
