LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — An inmate went downtown for an appointment on Wednesday and “slipped away,” according to the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services.

Danielle Zelazny, 37, is missing from the Community Corrections Center-Lincoln.

She was sentenced to two to four years for burglary in Lancaster County.

Zelazny would have been eligible for parole on June 28, 2023, and had a tentative release date of June 27, 2024.

She is a 5-foot-4, 260-pound white woman with brown hair and brown eyes.

Anyone who knows where she might be is asked to contact local authorities or the Nebraska State Patrol.

The facility is the least-restrictive type in Nebraska’s prison system. Inmates are allowed to go to work, school or religious services without direct supervision.
