LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The Nebraska Department of Corrections said an inmate went missing from the Community Corrections Center-Omaha on Saturday.

Devante Prusia disappeared while he was supposed to be at work during an approved release.

He removed his monitoring device, but officials did not say where the device was found.

Prusia started his sentence on Feb. 23, 2016.  He was sentenced to six to 10 years on charges that included burglary and theft by deception in Douglas County.

He had a parole hearing scheduled for Wednesday and a tentative release date of Feb. 13, 2025.

Prusia is a 29-year-old Black man with black hair and brown eyes.  He is 6-foot-3 and weighs about 190 pounds.

Anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts is asked to contact local authorities or the Nebraska State Patrol immediately.

The corrections center is one of two community-custody facilities operated by the Department of Corrections.

Community custody is the lowest custody level and the least restrictive type of facility.

Inmates are allowed to go to work, school and religious services with prior approval and without direct supervision.

Another inmate went missing from the facility on Tuesday.  He still has not been found.
