Minimum-Security Inmate Walks Away from Folsom State Prison

FOLSOM — California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials are looking for a minimum-security inmate who walked away from the minimum-support facility at Folsom State Prison (FSP) on Thursday, Oct. 26.

Inmate Todd Willis, 52, was discovered missing during an inmate count at 11 a.m. Oct. 26. On-duty staff immediately began searching the surrounding areas. Notification was made to local law enforcement agencies and CDCR’s Office of Correctional Safety.

Willis is a white male of light complexion, 6 feet, 1 inch tall, weighs 270 pounds and has brown eyes and short brown graying hair. He was last seen at 4:30 a.m.

He was received by CDCR from Sacramento County in January 2016 with a four-year sentence for assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury by a second-striker. He was scheduled to be released in July 2018.

Anyone who sees Willis should immediately contact law enforcement or call 911. Anyone knowing the location of Willis or having other relevant information is asked to contact the FSP Watch Commander at (916) 985-2561 extension 3019.

Since 1977, 99 percent of all offenders who have left an adult institution, camp, or community-based program without permission have been apprehended.
