Authorities said Joaquin (El Chapo) Guzman was wounded when he escaped from prison.

MEXICO CITY — Mexican prosecutors say they have carried out search warrants in three states and seized 11 small planes in the search for escaped drug lord Joaquin (El Chapo) Guzman.

The attorney general’s office said Tuesday that properties in Guzman’s home state of Sinaloa had been searched, along with buildings in the State of Mexico and Puebla, near Mexico City.

Authorities said recently they had located Guzman, who used an elaborately built tunnel to bust out of prison in July, in a mountainous area that stretches from Sinaloa into neighboring Durango state, and that he was wounded while getting away from them.
