Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Because he fled the state he is in violation of his parole, as you know. Missouri will not actually come after him, but they will put a warrant out for his arrest and enter it into the national criminal information system. Even though you think he has such a short time left the time stopped at the moment he fled, so the warrant will remain until he turns himself in or is arrested on the warrant. If he is arrested he will be held for the Missouri authorities to come pick him up to bring him to prison in Missouri. So yes they will take him when he is caught on the warrant and he will end up having to serve time for violating his parole.
