An inmate under Travis County custody escaped at 3:30 a.m. June 27 while receiving treatment from the University Medical Center at Brackenridge.

Parker is six-foot-tall black man and 165 pounds. He left the hospital in blue hospital pants and gown, and a hospital worker reported he was heading east of the hospital.

Parker was convicted of a felony offense June 9. The Travis County Sheriff’s Office issued a warrant for his arrest, and set his bond at $100,000. 

The Travis County Sheriff’s Office asked anyone with information about Parker and his location to call 9-1-1 immediately or Crime Stoppers at 512-472-TIPS (512-472-8477).
