Authorities on Monday were searching for an inmate who went missing from a conservation camp near Azusa.
Wade Anthony Raffaniello, a minimum-security inmate serving time for transporting and selling a controlled substance, was last seen in his dorm at Julius Klein Conservation Camp about 12:05 a.m. during a routine security check, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said in a press release.
When he was discovered missing, staff searched the inmate dormitory area, surrounding buildings and camp perimeter, but he was not found. Local law enforcement agencies have launched a search for Raffaniello.
He is described as a 50-year-old white man, about 5 foot 9 and 200 pounds, with a shaved head and hazel eyes. Raffaniello is serving a four-year sentence and had been set to be released in April 2018.
