New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision says a man who was convicted of first-degree rape in Binghamton in 1991 has removed his assigned GPS ankle bracelet and stopped reporting to his parole officer.
Ronald Cook, 66, of Utica, was last seen around 3 p.m. on Nov. 8, in Rome, officials said. He was wearing a yellow windbreaker.
Cook is in violation of Strict and Intensive Supervision under the Jurisdiction of the
Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, according to the report.
In 1991, Cook was convicted in the rape of a 24-year-old woman that occurred the previous October in Binghamton, according to New York State’s Sex Offender Registry. He was sentenced to 150 months to 25 years in state prison.
Law enforcement officials have advised that Cook should be considered dangerous, and anyone who sees him should call 911 immediately.
