Buffalo, NY (WKBW) - A former Buffalo teacher on parole for raping one of her students is on the run.

Officers say Cara Dickey cut off her ankle-monitoring device, and is nowhere to be found.

Dickey has been out on parole since February of 2012. She is not allowed to have contact with minors, but the New York State Department of Corrections says she may have been involved with another under age boy.

The former social studies teacher made headlines in 2008, as details unraveled about her alleged relationship with a 14-year-old student.

The married mother of three was accused of disappearing and entering into a suicide pact with the boy, providing the teen with alcohol and Tylenol.

Dickey served two years in the Albion Correctional Facility for rape. She was paroled in February of 2012.

On January 8th, a parole officer talked to Dickey about another possible involvement with a minor, as recent as the holidays.

Peter Cutler, with the NYS Department of Corrections, says "Her parole prohibited her from having contact with minors unless there was a waiver from her parole officer. And obviously that's not the case."

The next day, authorities say Dickey cut off her monitoring device. She has not been seen or heard from since.

Cutler says, "There seems to be concern about her violating her conditions of parole. We have taken the necessary steps, which is us executing a warrant."

Anyone with information should give Crimestoppers a call at 716-867-6161. Informants will remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
