Amanda Bynes on the lam from sober life?

Actress Amanda Bynes accepts the Favorite Movie Actress award during Nickelodeon's 16th Annual Kids' Choice Awards in 2003

Amanda Bynes, ET has exclusively learned, checked out of sober living facility on her own last week and is now looking for a place to live in the Los Angeles area.

In June, a source close to her told the same news outlet that her inpatient mental health facility gave her a one day pass so that Amanda could attend her FIDM graduation since she had "been doing well enough in treatment" for that to be allowed. She's also now not working according to the report, and dropped out of additional schooling after graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising back in June.

According to the source, Bynes - as well as her parents and their conservatorship attorney - were in a Ventura County courtroom on Thursday afternoon where they met with a judge to make sure it was acceptable that Bynes live on her own now that she is out of the sober living facility. At the time, sources reported the former All That star's whereabouts were unknown to even her own parents, who were concerned about the potential for a relapse.

Earlier this year, Amanda actually checked herself into a clinic to receive better mental health treatment.

'She has a great relationship with them.

Good! So it sounds like things may be progressing along nicely in some ways.

As readers know, Bynes graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising last summer, and had planned on going back to further her education, but she's allegedly dropped those plans and is out of work completely. She has access to her money so she's financially independent. Word is that when her parents learned that she left the sober house, they attempted to connect with her and convince her to return to the facility, but she refused.

After graduation, she apparently went straight back to the facility. She is open to getting help.
