Drone ends fugitive’s 17 years on-the-run


A drone has spotted a man who was in hiding, ending his 17 years on-the-run.

Police in south-West china used a drone to find the cave he was using as a hideout.

According to a report from the BBC, the 63-year old, named Song Jiang, had been jailed for trafficking women and children but escaped from a prison camp in 2002.

He had been living in a tiny cave cut off from human interaction for years.

The report went on to detail how Yongshan police received clues about Song’s whereabouts in early September.

Those clues led them to the mountains behind his hometown in Yunnan province in south-west China.

Police officers then moved in on foot to detain the man and have subsequently sent him back to prison.
