Dad of 9-year-old plane stowaway: 'He's got a behavioral problem

The child's father said that his wife reported him missing - the day after they last saw him, taking out the trash.

The boys father says he tried to get help for son - citing his checkered past.

"I don't have an angel, OK. I have a 9-year-old."

He also questioned how the child was able to sneak on to a plane undetected.

"I don't understand," he said. "You've got so (many) security checks at these airports. How can you let a 9-year-old sneak past security, get on the plane, without anyone stopping him, questioning him or anything?"
