LOS ANGELES (AP) — U.S. authorities are searching for a man sentenced for stalking actress Mila Kunis after he escaped from a Los Angeles County mental health facility by climbing through a bathroom window and scaling a barbed-wire fence.

Probation officials are looking for Stuart Lynn Dunn, who disappeared at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday from the Olive Vista Behavioral Health Center in Pomona, said Deputy Chief Reaver Bingham.

“He went in to take a shower,” Bingham said, “and when he didn’t come out they went in to check on him.”

“We’re treating him as dangerous,” he said. “He does have a fixation on the original victim, so that’s why.”

Kunis was personally notified of the escape, he said.

Dunn pleaded no contest to stalking the “Black Swan” and “That ’70s Show” actress in January 2013. Dunn was sentenced to six months of rehabilitation and five years of probation and ordered to stay away from the actress and her representatives for 10 years.

Messages seeking comment from representatives for Kunis were not immediately returned.
