Who was the last 'Samukh' (סמוך)?

Rambam stated in the introduction of his book, that the last Sanhedrin (סנהדרין) was a little before the Talmud was edited. But it says nothing about the last person who was Samukh.

Also, it is interesting why the last person didn't continue the 'Semikha' in order to keep it in Israel.
