Law enforcement in the North Country continues to track the two convicted killers who escaped from a maximum security prison over the weekend, but Gov. Andrew Cuomo acknowledged on Thursday their whereabouts remain unknown.

“They could either be four miles from the prison, or they could be in Mexico,” he said. “You just don’t know.”

Cuomo, speaking after a minimum wage rally in New York City, said every tip continues to be tracked down that could lead police and corrections officers to Matt and Sweat.

Meanwhile, Cuomo pledged to have anyone who potentially helped the men escape be prosecuted “to the fullest extent of the law.”

A woman who works in the prison facility’s tailor shop, Joyce Mitchell, is believed to be the woman in question who helped the convicts escape, though she is not been arrested or charged.

“Our first order of business is to get back the escapees,” Cuomo said. “We will make sure all crimes are fully prosecuted.”

Cuomo also confirmed that blood hounds had picked up the scents of the two men while police continue to comb the area.

Nevertheless, Cuomo defended the initial escape itself as police try to determine how Sweat and Matt got loose.

“This was the first escape in the prison’s history, from the maximum security portion of it,” Cuomo said. “There’s nothing to be embarrassed about — first escape since 1865. It’s not a bad record. We don’t know exactly what happened here.”
