Differenatly Abled Thirteen Year Old Fascinated by Planes

From the Miami HeraldA diferrently-abled thirteen-year-old Florida boy with Asperger's syndrome fixates on all things airplanes. He collects planes and will do anything to get to the airport. Twice in one week, authorities returned the boy after picking him up at the local rail station where he was trying to get a ride to the airport.

Last week the boy took his father's Ford Explorer and after never having driven before, drove all the way to the airport and parked on the third level of the airport parking garage, all without incident. And it get's better, he apparently used a stolen credit card number to book a coast to coast flight to San Jose where his mother lives. How he got the ticket or on the flight without identification, is not known.
