Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has been recaptured, "Happening Now" just reported. 

"Mission accomplished: We have him. I want to inform the Mexicans that Joaquin Guzman Loera has been detained," Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto announced in a tweet.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has also confirmed the arrest. 

Guzman had been on the loose since an amazing escape, using an underground tunnel, from a Mexican prison in July. 

Guzman was captured in Los Mochis, in northern Sinaloa, William La Jeunesse reported. 

Guzman, 58, heads the powerful Sinaloa cartel and spent 12 years as a fugitive previously after breaking out of jail in 2001.

He was captured in 2014.

Watch Geraldo Rivera, who reported on the daring escape over the summer, react to the capture in the clip above.
