A: If you left the state without permission from probation, they will file a motion to revoke your probation and a warrant for your arrest. If you have finished almost everything, they may be willing to set a bond you can post on the warrant and let you finish probation successful, or terminate you unsuccessfully with a minor punitive sanction, like a few days in jail.

If your PO has not realized you are gone yet and issued a warrant, you can come back and finish your requirements. If they have issued a warrant already, you will need to turn yourself in, bond, and deal with whatever the repercussions are.
