A tweet from Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman's son may reveal the fugitive's location.

The drug cartel leader's son, Jesus Alfredo Guzman, recently tweeted a photo of himself sitting with two men around a table. The faces of his companions were covered in huge emojis, but Fox News Latino wrote that one of the men resemble El Chapo.

The snapshot was captioned in Spanish, which translated to: "Agustoo, here with you know who apatoroo." The tweet's location said Costa Rica, but ABC News noted that it could be a Mexican town called Costa Rica, not the country.

This was not the first time that the younger Guzman seemingly boasted about his father's prison break. The day after El Chapo escaped from the Altiplano Federal Prison, his son wrote on Twitter, as translated by a separate report from Fox News Latino: "My father just has to want it, and he escapes from prison," followed by, "Life is one, short and dangerous, so you have to live it to the fullest without thinking about tomorrow, but today."

El Chapo's other son, Iván Archivaldo (who refers to himself as "El Chapito"), also seemed to have hinted about his father's escape months before it happened. He wrote: "I won't lie, I have cried but I bring armed men and I promise that soon the General will be back," as reported by the news outlet.

Earlier in July, he also tweeted: "Good things come to those who wait," Fox News Latino added. El Chapito didn't use Twitter that much, and his account was removed in July.

Both brothers had issues with law enforcement for drug trafficking and money laundering charges, Fox News Latino reported. In 2005, Archivaldo was arrested and convicted for money laundering but was acquitted by a Mexican judge three years ago.

El Chapo escaped the Altiplano Federal Prison in July using an elaborate and sophisticated underground tunnel, The Daily Beast wrote.

According to NBC News, El Chapo conducted business and personal matters in his cell at the Altiplano prison. Three attorneys and a chauffeur, who pretended to be a lawyer, also reportedly performed different duties so that El Chapo can still lead the Sinaloa cartel from prison.

Daily Mail reported in July that El Chapo was treated with "great respect" by guards, who called the drug lord "Don Joaquin" and "Lord." He also had privileges, and was the only prisoner in Altiplano with a cell phone.

In 2013, the DEA said that El Chapo's group earned $3 billion a year by routing drugs to the Chicago region of the U.S., Business Insider added. The cartel is also in control of 35% of the cocaine coming out of Colombia.
