Medical parolee Ronald Virgil Taylor, 50, is missing from the convalescent home where he lived in Eastern San Diego County. Taylor, who uses a wheelchair, was last seen on Wednesday afternoon. It is believed that someone may have helped him leave the facility. His wheelchair was found in a nearby lot.
Local law enforcement officers and specially trained parole apprehension agents are searching for Taylor ,who is described as a 6-foot tall African-American man with brown eyes and black hair. Taylor weighs about 230 pounds.
Taylor’s criminal history includes several convictions from Los Angeles County for robbery, along with kidnapping, burglary, assault and bringing a weapon to prison. Anyone with information about Taylor’s whereabouts is asked to call 911.
Taylor, who requires constant medical attention, was released to medical parole in June. Medical parole, which became law on Jan 1, 2011, allows the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to parole physically-incapacitated state prison inmates who require 24-hour medical care. Medical parole differs from compassionate release as offenders on medical parole remain under CDCR’s supervision.
Currently, California has 23 medical parolees living in skilled nursing units in California.
