Stowaway’s dad says requested help for problem son

MINNEAPOLIS — The father of a 9-year-old boy who evaded security and sneaked onto a flight from Minneapolis to Las Vegas told reporters Wednesday he has 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 that said his son had a history of misbehavior but that officials had told him they could not help because his son had not done anything bad enough yet.
