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.

Guzman is the storied boss of one of the world's most powerful and deadly drug trafficking operations.

He escaped in 2001 from a high-security prison in a laundry cart, and was not apprehended again until February, 2014, when he was arrested at a Mexican beach resort.
