Hello,

His parole officer is likely going to violate him. The first missed appointment may have been an accident, but his parole officer gave him the benefit of the doubt and told him to come in the next day, and he didn't. That's going to look intentional unless he has a good excuse.

His parole officer isn't getting back to him again because he already knows what his parole officer is going to tell him. He has to get in there, and the longer he waits, the better the chance that parole is going to violate him. In fact, parole may want to violate him for missing the second appointment when he was specifically told to come in. But at least if he comes in quickly he may get a short term sanction rather than risk a revocation of his parole altogether.
