The June 1962 Alcatraz escape attempt was one of two escape attempts from Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary in which neither the escapees, nor their bodies, were found. Late one night in June, inmates Clarence Anglin, John Anglin, and Frank Morris broke out of the main prison building via an unused utility corridor. They disappeared without a trace.
