A man described as a high risk sex offender has escaped from a bay area facility. Derrick Sanders, 34, was discovered to be missing early this morning from the Cordilleras Mental Health Rehabilitation Center. He was paroled to that facility (does that mean he escaped or absconded?) and is believed to have gotten out through an elevator shaft.
He has a history of violence and is currently facing misdemeanor charges of a sexual offense against a minor in San Mateo County.
The facility named is a private mental health facility in Redwood City.
