If you take the risk will they find out?
I’ve been on Probation for several months and still have a while to go.
For about a month or so I’ve been thinking about travelling to a few places and I was told that I have to confirm Probation about my plans and when I plan to leave/ come back. I was also told that I could just take the risk by not telling her our plans and just leave.
Time allowing, we had no time to tell them and just left. I knew it was risky, then we just went ahead. Now I’m in Europe.
When I come back (next week) I don’t know what could happen or whenever or not they would find out or they would just let me of. I don’t want this to become a violation or anything like that.

Why didn't you just say so before you left? You know perfectly well that your probation officer can visit at any time and find out you aren't at home. Very likely for just being away for a week nobody will notice, but as with all breaches of probation conditions, if it IS discovered, the matter can be taken back to court to rethink the sentence.
Whoever told you that you could just take the risk must be an idiot.

Now that you've admitted what you did on the internet, it should be easy for your parole officer to find you.

You should have thought of this before you left. Now the best you can hope for is that somehow you slip through the system and don't get caught. However, I wouldn't bet on it.

You are probably fine. if its misdemeanor probation I doubt they will care, unless your PO checks with whatever agency he would have to check with to see if you left the country. if they didn't take your passport away then they are probably not concerned. if you failed to show u on the day you are supposed to you will be in trouble. I was on probation for a year for cocaine possession in America but live in europe also and I went back and forth all the time. I didn't have to check in though..just mail in forms every month and a fine

Well it is. Turn yourself in now. Tell your Probation Officer and so you can start serving your Jail time. And quit making excuses for yourself. You should know not to break the rules. And when you do you need to understand you will hat consequences as a man you need to take responsibility for your actions it's just that simple.

Stay in Europe and never go back

They probably will find out, this wasn't the best idea. Why did you decide not to tell them, exactly? They could let you off, but the risk wasn't worth it imo.
