The father of a 9-year-old boy who evaded security to stow away on a flight from Minneapolis to Las Vegas told reporters Wednesday he’s been frustrated in his efforts to get help for his troubled son.

The father spoke at a news conference on condition of anonymity to protect his son. Sobbing at times, he said his son had a history of misbehavior but officials had told him they couldn’t help because his son hadn’t done anything bad enough yet.

“I’m tired of people saying he’s a minor, there’s nothing we can do. There’s something somebody can do,” said the dad, wearing a hoodie and baseball cap pulled low to hide his face.

The boy took a light-rail train to the airport last Thursday and blended in with a family to get past security, slipped past a gate agent and took an empty seat on the Delta Air Lines flight. The flight crew turned him over to police in Las Vegas, where he was still being held Wednesday.
