Fresno County Sheriff's Deputies are searching for a parolee who escaped from custody in Downtown Fresno.

They say 25-year-old Robert Lee Davis III escaped while being treated at Community Regional Medical Center Tuesday night. The sheriff's office says Davis was taken to the hospital after telling deputies he ingested ecstasy.

While waiting in the ER, Davis was unshackled so he could use the restroom. After several minutes, he bolted out of the bathroom, ran out of the ER, and into a neighborhood. Officers chased Davis but lost track of him.

If you see Davis or know where he might be, you are asked to call the Fresno County Sheriff's Office.
