(CNN)Two convicted murderers escaped from a maximum security prison in upstate New York by cutting through a steel wall and following a series of tunnels until they emerged from a manhole outside the prison walls, authorities said Saturday afternoon.

Richard Matt, 48, and David Sweat, 34, were discovered missing at the 5:30 a.m. "standing count" of inmates at the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, New York State Police said on the agency's Facebook page.

An intense manhunt was underway with more than 200 law enforcement officers looking for the men -- the first to escape from the maximum security portion of the prison, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said at a press conference.

"These are dangerous people," he said. "They are nothing to be trifled with."

If the death penalty was in place as it should be these thugs would not be on the run today. Now you have a cop killer on the move forcing the police to drop him .when he is cornered .

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."

What do you have in your gun rack?
