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.

Authorities at Salt Lake City International Airport reportedly searched for the teen on Thursday, but he was found the following day "in or around" the wheel well of a jet parked in a hangar.
