Edgar Vidales-Ramirez, #212051, left CCC-L the evening of Thursday, November 18. On Monday, November 22, authorities advised NDCS that he was in Omaha. 

Vidales-Ramirez started his sentence on June 29, 2020. He was sentenced to three years and four months on charges out of Douglas County that include assault by strangulation, child abuse and escape. He has a tentative release date of December 18, 2021.
