Authorities are searching for 37-year-old Joseph Skeeter after he did not return to community corrections. Skeeter left the Lincoln facility around 6 a.m. Thursday to search for a job and did not return.
He was listed as an escapee from the prison system just before 10 p.m.
Skeeter is 6-foot-4 weighing 177 pounds. He was sentenced for burglary, aiding and abetting and possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine.
Inmates have to work hard and perform well to earn the privilege to be approved for community corrections, more commonly known as the work release program.
Anyone who sees Skeeter should call 911.
