Google’s Larry Page is spending a lot of time on his Caribbean island.

The co-founder of the world’s dominant search engine has been remarkably hard to find of late. Larry Page, CEO of Google’s parent company Alphabet, has been spending more time on his private island in the Caribbean rather than at Google’s Mountain View, Calif. campus, according to Bloomberg Businessweek.

Larry Page, CEO of Google’s parent company Alphabet, has been spending more time on his private island in the Caribbean rather than at Google’s Mountain View, Calif. campus, according to Bloomberg Businessweek.

The billionaire executive, who started Google along with Sergey Brin, has left day-to-day decisions to lieutenants like Google CEO Sundar Pichai, and is described as being “invisible to wide swaths of the company.”

The 45-year-old page still oversees Alphabet’s subsidiaries and attends occasional meetings at the company’s headquarters, according to Bloomberg. Still, he prefers to only take on “rare projects that deeply fascinate him” such as those done by Alphabet’s X research lab, which focuses on “moonshot” projects like flying cars and attempts to halt the human aging process..

Page was conspicuously absent at last week’s grilling of tech execs on Capitol Hill. While Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey took questions about election meddling from Congress, an empty chair labeled “Google” was set up to shame Page after he declined an invitation.

Robert McNamee, an early Google investor who now says the company should be broken up, said Page’s decision not to attend was a failure to do his civic duty.

“You’ve been invited to speak in front of a Senate hearing to protect our democracy, and your response is, ‘We’re too important to go’?” he told Bloomberg. “The whole world is looking at them: ‘What the hell is wrong with you people? Who are you?’”
