(Scroll down for video) Police are looking for several inmates who escaped from prison by removing a toilet and crawling out from a hole, according to police in Tennessee.

The Cocke County Sheriff’s Office said that a total of six inmates escaped from the Cocke County Jail Annex, after noticing a water leak behind the toilet.

Police identified the prisoners as John Mark Speir, Steven Lewis, John Thomas Shehee, Harce Wade Allen, Eric S. Click, and David Wayne Frazier.

All prisoners have been located and returned to prison except for Frazier.

According to the police investigation, the water leak behind the toilet caused the concrete to get damaged enough for the men to remove the toilet.

They then escaped through a hole that led them outside of the prison.
