According to the official version, Frank Morris, and the brothers John and Clarence Anglin were presumed drowned in the cold and choppy waters of San Francisco Bay. There are plenty of people who think they did make it ashore and have been in hiding ever since.

Though they were said to have drowned in the San Francisco Bay, their bodies were never found. Here, a picture released by the prison shows the dummy head (l.) that was used by John Anglin to fool prison guards into thinking he was in bed.
