Advice what to do with a former boss

I had a contractual work (internship) and three months before the end of the internship, the manager asked me what's my schedule for the internship extension will be. I said same schedule. He said he was not sure yet if there's funds but would let me know.

He didn't say anything, so I emailed him asking about the status (I was just there a few days a week so I don't catch him often) No response. Eventually I found out that some interns have not been renewed as well due to lack of funds.

My internship ended and I emailed him a request for a reference letter a week ago. He also did not response.

Do I follow-up or do I just assume he does not want to do it?

Why not approach the HR department, or the person who "line-managed" you? You can't have an intern line-managed by an absentee boss, after all!

Yeah but I'm just wondering why I never get any response from him, even maybe him telling me to ask the staff I directly worked with.
