HONG KONG One Hong Kong newspaper has the headline, "World's Most Wanted Man Breaks Cover in Hong Kong."

Papers there are talking about Edward Snowden, the 29-year-old former CIA employee who fled to Hong Kong before leaking top-secret documents about U.S. surveillance programs.

Snowden had been staying in a Hong Kong hotel, but he's checked out and he may be in hiding.

Meanwhile, the Justice Department is investigating whether Snowden's disclosures are a criminal offense.

Advocates say if Snowden is forced to return to the U.S. to face charges, they'll raise money for his legal defense.
