November 5, 2021 (Lincoln, Neb.) – An inmate missing from the Community Corrections Center – Lincoln (CCC-L) has been returned to the custody of the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services (NDCS). Michael Fitzgerald #72646 was picked up by members of the Lincoln Police Department early on the morning of November 4, 2021. He was reported missing the previous day. 

Fitzgerald started his sentence on December 1, 2010. He was sentenced 16 to 22 years on two charges of burglary out of Wayne County. He has a tentative release date of April 28, 2022.
