Authorities say the 16-year-old boy ran from police and jumped an airfield fence Thursday after they tried to pull him over in a stolen car.  Authorities searched for the teen overnight.

An airplane mechanic inspecting a plane Friday spotted the teenager in the regional jet's wheel well.

Salt Lake City International Airport spokeswoman Nancy Volmer says the teen was found at a maintenance hangar northwest of the main airport terminal and taken into custody.
