Wanted parolee escapes in Fresno County

FRESNO, Calif.

Deputies are looking for 41-year-old Ronald Dafford of Fresno.

On Friday, Fresno County Deputies and C.H.P. officers chased Dafford through the mountains, losing him near Pine Flat Lake. They later found his wrecked vehicle nearby.

Dafford is believed to be travelling with his wife or girlfriend Karla Scott.

He's wanted for stealing property and a parole violation. Investigators say Dafford may be armed and may still be on foot in the area.

If you see either of them, you are asked to call 911 or the Fresno County Sheriff's Office.
