LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- The Nebraska Department of Correctional Services says it has accounted for all but three of the 45 prisoners who were released before they should have been and still owe time.

State officials issued arrest warrants for 20 of those inmates. The governor's office said Wednesday that 12 of them are back in custody, three were previously deported, one is at the Norfolk Regional Center for sex offenders, and one is dead. The remaining three have not been found.

Arrest warrants were not issued for the other 25 inmates. The department says three have been placed on the re-entry furlough program, 10 are pending for the program, and eight have had their parole extended. Two are dead, one was deported, and one is incarcerated in Oklahoma.
