LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - A third inmate at the Community Corrections Center in Lincoln has gone missing in the last week.

Officials with NDCS said Mia Montes left her job on Monday and didn’t return to the facility.

According to prison officials, her electronic monitoring device was later found on the side of the road.

Montes is serving 4 to 8-years on drug related charges and is up for parole in September 2021.

If you see Montes, you’re asked to call police.

Montes is the third inmate housed at CCC-L to go missing in one week.

Last week, Ronald Sowards came back to the Community Corrections Center-Lincoln on June 5th and days earlier Patrick Carey was admitted back into custody at CCC-L one day after he left his assigned work location and did not return to the facility following his shift.

CCC-L is one of two community custody facilities operated by NDCS. Community custody is the lowest custody level and the least restrictive facility. Inmates are allowed to participate in work opportunities, attend school and religious services with prior approval and without direct supervision.
