AKRON, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland 19 News is back reporting on yet another escape from an Oriana House facility. This time, it's the Residential Institutional Probation Program in the heart of Akron.

Will Fisher tells Cleveland 19 News his son, Paul Fisher, a convicted felon and who Will says is a drug addict walked out the front door of this place on April 14.

"Someone need to be held accountable," Will Fisher said. "It's just outrageous."

Will says the Oriana House never warned him that his heroin addicted son had escaped.

They did send Mom and Dad a letter days later saying that they could drop by and pick up his belongings.

Why no warning?

Cleveland 19 News has asked that question before when investigative reporter Scott Taylor exposed more than 60 AWOLS and escapes at the Oriana Facility in downtown Cleveland in the past 16 months.

Oriana House told Cleveland 19 News they are only required to tell the courts and law enforcement -- they never warn the public or any victims, including families.

"Definitely, they should be warned," Will Fuller said. "We thought our son was finally in a safe place. He just vanished. We never were told about it and we just happened by chance to know about it or we probably never would've been notified."
