St Paul (KROC AM News) - A convicted sex offender from Minnesota who recently moved to California has disappeared and authorities are asking the public’s help in trying to locate him.

The Minnesota Department of Corrections issued the request for 55-year-old Robert Thomas Baca.

He was released from the Minnesota DOC last October and his supervision was later transferred to the Department of Corrections in San Bernardino, California, where he has family and a support system.

Baca was released last month from a detention center in California where he was being questioned on new charges. He was told to report to his California agent’s office the next day but was a no-show.

The Minnesota DOC says Baca’s last known residence was in Ontario, California. Baca has links to family members there and in Nebraska as well as historical ties to the Detroit Lakes, Minnesota area.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts or activities of Baca is asked to call 911, the Minnesota Department of Corrections Fugitive Hot Line 651-603-0026.
