LAS VEGAS (AP) — For the second time in two weeks, prison officials in Nevada say an inmate walked away from a minimum-custody work camp

The Nevada Department of Corrections said Wednesday that 44-year-old Mary Mitchell was reported missing following a head count late Tuesday at the Jean Conservation Camp. That's about 30 miles south of Las Vegas.

Mitchell was serving a 20-to-50 month sentence for theft and burglary convictions.

She's 5 feet 4 inches tall with brown eyes, dark brown hair and multiple tattoos including permanent makeup on her eyes and lips.

Meanwhile, a prisons spokeswoman says 37-year-old Jeremy Bryson is back in custody following his arrest Monday in the Las Vegas area.

Bryson had been reported missing Dec. 8 from the Pioche (pee-OH'-sh) Conservation Camp, about 180 miles north of Las Vegas.
