May 4, 2022 (Omaha, Neb.) – An inmate who went missing from the Community Corrections Center – Omaha (CCC-O) has been returned to the custody of the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services (NDCS). Officers with the Omaha Police Department took Jonathan Walker-Hernandez #213336 into custody shortly after 6:00 p.m. yesterday at North 11th Street and Avenue H East in Omaha. He failed to return to CCC-O on Tuesday, May 3, after leaving his place of work.

Walker-Hernandez started his sentence June 14, 2021. He was sentenced to two to three years on a charge out of Douglas County for possession of a deadly weapon by a prohibited person. He has a parole eligibility date of June 6, 2022 and a tentative release date of December 6, 2022.
