A $5,000 reward has been offered for help in the capture of prison escapee Timothy Clausen.
That brings the total rewards offered to $7,500.
The United States Marshal Service has announced it will offer $5,000 for information leading to the capture of Clausen, who escaped from the state-run Lincoln Correctional Center on Friday with Armon Dixon.
Authorities captured Dixon without incident in Lincoln Saturday.
Clausen remains at large, believed still to be in the Omaha area.
The Marshal’s Service is also staffing two 800 numbers for citizens to call with sightings, tips or information.
In addition to calling 911, citizens are now being urged to call 1-877-WANTED2 or 1-800-336-0102 to report any suspicious persons, activity or sightings of anyone matching the physical description of the escapee. Callers will speak directly with a representative from the U.S. Marshal.
Clausen is 52. He is described as an African American male, 5’8″, 160 pounds. He has no distinguishing marks or tattoos. He could still be wearing his hair pulled back or in cornrows.
The investigation has led authorities to believe Clausen remains in Omaha, with the concentration of the search focusing on northeastern Omaha.
Clausen, convicted of sexual assault, is considered dangerous. Citizens are urged to remain vigilant, and to be aware of their surroundings.
The $5,000 reward from the U.S. Marshals Service is in addition to a $2,500 reward being offered by Omaha Crime Stoppers.
