Infamous Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has escaped, again. The leader of the Sinaloa Cartel turned up missing from Altiplano Federal Prison (near Mexico City) on Saturday (July 11).

Reports CNN:

Mexican authorities have launched a manhunt to find drug kingpin Joaquin Guzman, who has broken out of prison again, the country’s National Security Commission said Sunday.

Guards at the Altiplano Federal Prison discovered during a routine check on Saturday that Guzman, who known as “El Chapo,” was missing, a statement from the commission said.

Guzman was captured in early 2014 after having eluded capture for more than a dozen years.

This is Guzman’s second escape from a maximum security prison. Reportedly, he escaped via a tunnel.
Yahoo News reports that he was last seen around 9pm but then dropped off the prison’s surveillance footage. His cell was then found empty.
Back in 2012, Gucci Mane penned a song/tribute to “El Chapo.”
