Early reports are that he's a runaway.
Update this morning: his mother, who works at the airport, may have helped him. They didn't say where she worked (TSA, an airline, for the actual airport, etc).

They found footage of him on the security camera the day before, apparently doing a "trial run." He took the lightrail to the airport. And at 9 years old, he's already a known entity to the police: he stole a car just last week.

Apparently he's still in custody while the whole incident is under investigation. I think they think it's suspicious that the parents did not report him as a missing child. (More evidence that they helped him? Wanted to get rid of him?? Bizarre.)
