July 14, 2023 (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). Seth Horstman #71157 was arrested by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. He disappeared on June 8, 2023, when he left his job in the community and did not return to the facility.

Horstman started his sentence on March 2, 2010. He was sentenced to 19 years and 26 months to 32 years for charges that include three counts of robbery out of Douglas County. 

CCC-O is one of two community custody facilities operated by NDCS. Community custody is the lowest custody level and the least restrictive facility. Inmates are allowed to participate in work opportunities, attend school and religious services with prior approval and without direct supervision.
