According to an pronunciation Released by Yongshan police on his official social media account, Mr. Song escaped from a prison camp in Sichuan province in southwestern China.

A number of attempts to find him by the police failed and Mr. Song was mentioned as one of the most wanted fugitives in China.

Earlier this month, the police launched a new investigation round to find the man. They received instructions that claimed he could hide in the mountains behind his hometown of Daxing.

Officers searched in vain for clues in the remote areas. They then decided to use drones to help with the manhunt.

On September 19, the police flew an unmanned aerial vehicle over the area for five hours and saw a blue steel roof on an almost vertical cliff through the monitor.
