MORENO VALLEY — California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) officials are looking for an offender who walked away from a residential home in the Alternative Custody Program (ACP).

At approximately 12:30 p.m., Michael Diaz, 28, was discovered missing after he tampered with his ankle monitor. Diaz had been participating in ACP in Moreno Valley since October 2016.

ACP is a voluntary program developed for eligible offenders that allows them to serve up to the last 12 months of their sentence in the community in lieu of confinement in state prison. Eligible participants may be housed in a private residence, a transitional care facility or a residential drug or other treatment program. 

Diaz was received by CDCR in June 2015, from Riverside County with a two year sentence for a violation of Health and Safety Code, Possession of a Controlled Substance for Sale and Possession Own Firearm by Felon or Addict. 

If anyone has information about or knowledge of the location of this individual they should immediately contact 911.
