Judge: Stowaway boy can return home soon

 

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A judge says a Minnesota boy who stowed away on a Las Vegas-bound flight last year can return home soon.

The boy, who's now 10, has been under the supervision of child protective services and at a residential facility receiving treatment for his behavior.

Hennepin County Judge Joseph Klein said Wednesday the boy will be put on a waiting list for services and can return home once they are available.

The Star Tribune reports lawyers say the boy's parents are eager for him to return home.

The boy gained national notoriety Oct. 3 when he sneaked past security at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and boarded a flight to Las Vegas by himself without a ticket. He was detained when the plane landed in Nevada and returned to Minnesota.
