An inmate walked out of the Community Corrections Center-Lincoln on Sunday afternoon and remained at-large Monday, according to the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services.

Dominique Moody, 27, was discovered missing from the minimum-security prison at about 4:30 p.m., the release stated. Prison staff told local law enforcement that Moody had absconded from the center a short time later.

Moody is serving a six- to nine-year sentence for a 2015 burglary at a Lincoln apartment complex.

Inmates at the Community Corrections Center-Lincoln are allowed to work and go to school or religious services with prior approval and supervision. 

Moody is the second inmate from the center to abscond in less than a month. In late January, convicted murderer Anthony Gafford didn't return to the prison from his job at Smithfield Foods. He was arrested two weeks later in Las Vegas.

Anyone who knows Moody's whereabouts is encouraged to contact law enforcement.
