LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — The Nebraska Department of Correctional Services says Community Corrections Center-Lincoln (CCC-L) inmate Jamie Bear left the facility Friday for his full-time job but never returned.

Bear began his two-year sentence on Aug. 6, 2019 for charges out of Madison County that include possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), unauthorized use of a propelled vehicle and obstruction of an officer.

His tentative release date is April 28, 2020.

Bear is described as a 34-year-old white man, 5'10", 200 lbs with brown hair and brown eyes.

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

Anyone who knows where Bear might be is asked to contact local authorities or the Nebraska State Patrol.
