Hamza bin Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden (born c. 1991) better known as Hamza bin Laden or "Hamza Laden", is a son of Osama bin Laden.
2 May 2011 Raid
Hamza is the son of Khairiah Sabar of Saudi Arabia, one of Bin Laden's three wives who were living in the Abbottabad compound.
Interrogation of the surviving wives of Osama Bin Laden by Pakistani intelligence after the raid on the Abbottabad revealed Hamza was the only person missing. He was not among those killed or injured.
The raid conducted by the SEAL team was thorough: infrared technology, as well as ground troops, remained confident nobody inside the compound had escaped. There were no hidden exit tunnels from the compound.
In a letter confiscated in the raid, written by bin Laden and addressed to his "Chief of Staff" Atiyah Abd al-Rahman, bin Laden mentions his desire that Hamza would be educated in Qatar as a religious scholar so that he could "refute the wrong and the suspicions raised around Jihad."
The same letter revealed that Hamza did not escape the raid because he was not even present in Abbottabad.
Letters from the compound also confirmed that Osama was grooming Hamza to be his heir apparent following the death of Hamza's older brother Saad in a 2009 US drone strike.
OSAMA bin Laden’s son – dubbed the Crown Prince of Terror – may be at large after fleeing the US assault on his father’s secret compound. Spy chiefs fear Hamza escaped as US Seals shot his father in the head and chest – sparking fears the bin Laden terror legacy could live on.
Three of bin Laden’s wives have told Pakistani interrogators Hamza, 20, has not been seen since the raid last Monday. According to intelligence sources Hamza was bin Laden’s closest confidante and brainwashed into terror acts in his early teens.

The Boston bin Ladens, for instance, own several units in a luxury condo and 16 percent of Hybridon, a Boston, Mass.,-based biotech company engaged in cancer research — and technology that someday could be used to defend against biological attacks. And while their brother was allegedly sponsoring the first Trade Center bombing in 1993, the other bin Ladens were donating millions to Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass., for Muslim scholarships and art.
