Judge: Vegas Stowaway Boy To Remain At Youth Facility

A Hennepin County District Court judge decided Friday that the 9-year-old boy who stowed away on a plane to Las Vegas in October should remain in a youth facility. According to the Hennepin County Attorney’s office, Friday’s hearing was a pre-trial on a Child in Need of Protection and Services (CHIPS) petition, which was filed when the boy returned to Minneapolis in October. The boy’s parents were not ready to resolve all of the issues at the proceedings, which led to the scheduling of a trial date.

Boy Boards Plane To Vegas At MSP Without Ticket

A 9-year-old Minneapolis boy was able to get through security and onto a plane at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport without a ticket, an airport spokesman said Sunday. Security officials screened the boy at airport shortly after 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Metropolitan Airports Commission spokesman Patrick Hogan said. The boy then boarded Delta Flight 1651, which left for Las Vegas at 11:15 a.m. The flight was not full, Hogan said, and the flight crew became suspicious midflight because the boy was not on their list of unattended minors. The crew contacted Las Vegas police, who met them upon landing and transferred the boy to child protection services, Hogan said.
