The Community Corrections Center-Omaha says inmate Katara Smith was discovered missing around 6 p.m. on Tuesday.

Smith is serving a 21-27 year sentence for two counts of robbery, two counts of use of a weapon to commit a felony and two counts of assault.

Community custody is the lowest custody level and the least restrictive facility operated by the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services. According to NDCS, inmates are allowed to participate in work opportunities, attend school and religious services with prior approval and without direct supervision.

Smith's tentative release date is December 2020. He has a parole hearing scheduled in July 2019. He's described as a 38-year-old man, 5'9", 157 lbs., with black hair and brown eyes. We've attached his photo to this web story.
