Posted May 5th, 2014 @ 3:56pm

A 15-year-old stowaway on a Maui-bound flight is back in California. The San Jose Mercury News says the Somali teen returned from Hawaii late last week. The paper also said the child is in the custody of the Department of Family and Children's Services in Santa Clara County. The teen survived 5-and-a-half hours in the plane's wheel well. His father had said his son was not adjusting well to life in America and may have been trying to get to Africa to see his mother.
