An inmate thought to have ties with the Russian mob has managed to escape from a floating jail in New York.

David Mordukhaev's prison break early Saturday morning came just hours after suspicious federal investigators had called the Vernon C. Bain Correctional Facility to check on him at around 1am. 

At the time, officials were informed that Mordukhaev, 30, was indeed still inside his cell.

When a second call was placed at 4.30am, Mordukhaev was nowhere to be found. Only his prison clothes remained.

The timeline of his escape remains murky as it is not 100 percent certain if guards physically checked his cell when the first request was made.   

Mordukhaev, who is 5'8" and weighs 220 pounds, is believed to have escaped from the prison barge docked in The Bronx through his cell window. 

Investigators said he may have had a car waiting to collect him upon his breakout.
