MEXICO CITY (AP) - Software company founder John McAfee says he has left Belize and is still on the run. He says on his blog "we are not in Belize, but not quite out of the woods yet." 

The latest chapter in the saga of the eccentric anti-virus company founder featured rumors over the weekend that he had been caught. 

Police in the Central American nation have denied he was captured. 

In an email to The Associated Press, McAfee confirmed a posting to his website that described in what appeared to be joking tones how he had avoided authorities by mounting a distraction. 

In the blog Monday, McAfee claimed that "my 'double,' carrying on a North Korean passport under my name, was in fact detained in Mexico for pre-planned misbehavior."
