The plane Ed Snowden was meant to be on has taken off, but while there are dozens of journalists onboard, the ex-Booz Allen employee is nowhere to be seen. He was expected to be on an Aeroflot flight out of Russia.
Reporters have left Moscow on a flight to Cuba (there must be worse places to get stuck without anything to cover), but they're none the wiser as to Ed's whereabouts.

OVER 30 JOURNALISTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD BOUGHT TICKET *MOSCOW - HAVANA* TO TAKE PICTURE OF THE EMPTY SEAT. GREAT! pic.twitter.com/DMBGu8sRkM— Russian Market (@russian_market) June 24, 2013
