Delgado is described as a Hispanic man with black hair, brown eyes and a goatee. He is 5 feet, 7 inches tall, weighs 156 pounds and was wearing a gray sweatshirt and gray sweatpants.

Delgado was admitted from Santa Barbara County on March 1, 2019, to serve a four-year sentence for possessing or owning a firearm by a felon and possession of a controlled substance for sale. He was scheduled to be released in June 2021.

“Anyone who sees Delgado should immediately contact law enforcement or call 911,” CDCR officials said in a news release Wednesday.
