HONOLULU (AP) — Police in San Jose, Calif., say they are reviewing whether charges are warranted against a 16-year-old boy who authorities say jumped a fence at San Jose's airport and stowed away aboard a Hawaii-bound flight.

The FBI has said the boy got into the wheel well of a Hawaiian Airlines flight at San Jose's airport on Sunday morning after running away from his family following an argument.

He hopped down from the wheel well when the plane landed at the Maui airport and was seen wandering the airport grounds.

He was questioned by the FBI, but then released to child protective services. He was not charged with a crime.
