So how did those three inmates escape from the Orange County Central Men's Jail?
According to authorities, they were able to get past security points in at least three areas, getting away by cutting through half-inch steel bars, making their way through plumbing tunnels and then rappelling from the roof to the ground using a makeshift rope made of bed sheets.
How they got the tools for the breakout and how they went undetected is still unknown.
Sheriff's Department officials on Sunday offered details about the escape and the manhunt -- and also shared some photos about how it all happened. Jonathan Tieu, 20, Bac Duong, 43, and Hossein Nayeri, 37, were discovered missing from the jail on Friday. Tieu is charged with murder, Duong with attempted murder and Nayeri with kidnapping and torture.
Here are some images shared by the Orange County Sheriff's Department:
