Stowaway, 9, to remain away from Minn. home

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A 9-year-old boy who hopped a flight from Minneapolis to Las Vegas last month won’t return to his home yet.

A brief hearing was held Wednesday on a child protection petition. Those attending agreed it would be best for the Minneapolis boy to remain in outside custody while a second psychological assessment is taken.

Assistant Hennepin County Senior Attorney Cory Carlson told the judge the boy is “making some progress in his placement.”

The Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/17LEINB ) reports the boy wasn’t in the courtroom, but his attorney objected to an assessment done on the boy, prompting the second evaluation.

In early October, the boy eluded airport security and stowed away on a flight from Minneapolis to Las Vegas. He was returned to Minneapolis.

The next hearing will be Dec. 20.
