An inmate was declared missing Wednesday night from the Community Corrections Center-Lincoln (CCC-L).
Davaughn Johnson, #76406, had been in the correctional facility since August 2020 but was recently granted parole pending the completion of quarantine. He was in quarantine because of a positive COVID-19 case in the wing he was living.
Right around 2 p.m. Wednesday, staff found a cell phone in Johnson’s cell. 30 minutes later, Johnson was missing from his room. Officials say that a surveillance video of him jumping a fence at the facility showed him going east on Van Dorn street.
