April 4, 2023 (Omaha, Neb.) – Authorities have been notified about an inmate missing from the Community Corrections Center – Omaha (CCC-O). Matthew Lyons #71535 left the facility this evening and his last identified point was near the Open Door Mission.

Lyons started his sentence May 11, 2010. He is serving a 6 year 166 months to 10 year 298 month sentence out of Lancaster County for possession of a firearm, possession of marijuana, and second degree forgery.  He is scheduled for a parole hearing in July 2023.
