Oracle CEO Larry Ellison warned Hewlett-Packard to keep its new CEO away from its Palo Alto headquarters if it didn’t want him subpoenaed. Now Ellison’s apparently following up with a  full-fledged man hunt for the CEO-on-the-lam, Leo Apotheker.

Reuters reports that Oracle has hired private investigators to find the elusive Leo.  HP and its lawfirm have refused to accept Oracle’s subpoena for Apotheker, according to the story. Apotheker ‘s official start date at HP was November 1.

Oracle is suing SAP, where Apotheker had been CEO, over theft of trade secrets.
