Within hours of a walkawayinmate's capture, another minimum security inmate walked away from a work crew in Reno Tuesday morning.

The Nevada Department of Corrections reported 20-year-old Zachary David Tankersley was working with the Nevada Department of Forestry doing weed abatement this morning near the 580 freeway at South Meadows when he left the area.

Tankersley is 5'11", approximately 160 pounds with green eyes and brown hair. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, white T-shirt and black work boots.

Tankersley was admitted to the Department of Corrections on March 1 and was serving 1 to 3 years for burglary out of Washoe County. He was housed at the Stewart Conservation Camp in Carson City.

It is believed Tankersley is still in the Reno area, though he may have ties to the Stockton, California.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Tankersley is asked to contact police.
