An inmate and registered sex offender at the Putnam County Jail has disappeared after receiving a medical furlough through the Putnam County Common Pleas Court, according to the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office.
The inmate, Donald Schulte, was released at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday with an electronic GPS monitor for a doctor’s appointment. He was set to return at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, but did not.
Schulte was originally being held on theft charges. However, he is a registered sex offender, according to Putnam County Court records, after he pleaded guilty to corruption of a minor, a first-degree felony, in 2013.
He is currently registered as a non-compliant Tier I sex offender, the least serious tier of sex offender, on the Ohio Attorney Generals website.
The website also lists him as a resident of Continental, Ohio.
Schulte is a 24-year-old white man, about six feet tall, 170 pounds, with green eyes and blond-red hair. He was last seen wearing a maroon long-sleeved dress shirt with grey slacks.
He has a heart tattoo on his left hand and the number one on his right hand.
If he is seen, please call the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office at 419-523-3208.
