The family of a boy who snuck onto a plane at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and flew to Las Vegas spoke Wednesday at a news conference in Minneapolis.
The 9-year-old boy was making the trip to meet someone he had met online, said Patrick Hogan, MSP spokesman. The boy possibly met the person through a video game.
His mother told authorities that the family has no friends or family in Las Vegas.
