Missing Hamza bin Laden may have turned in his father, Osama.

Separately, ABC News reports that one of bin Laden’s wives, who was captured in the U.S. raid, has told Pakistani investigators that one of the terror leader’s sons escaped and is missing. Pakistani officials are said to have done a head count, and to believe it’s true, though U.S. officials say they’re confident no one escaped during or after the raid.

“Out of 21, one person is not accounted for,” a Pakistani intelligence official told ABC. “I believe that’s the son.”

Pakistani investigators are probing whether the son could be 22-year-old Hamza bin Laden, known as “The Crown Prince of Terror.” Hamza was credited with writing a poem praising the 2005 London bombings, and was accused by Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto of attempting to assassinate her. Bhutto was killed by Islamic extremists in 2007.
