The 15 year-old boy who stowed away in the wheel well of a Hawaiian Airlines jet has left Hawaii.
Spokeswoman Kayla Rosenfeld of the Hawaii Department of Human Services says Yahya Abdi is safe.
The boy's father Abdilahi Yusuf arrived in Hawaii on Tuesday to reunite with his son.
Abdi survived a 5.5-hour flight from San Jose, California, to Maui on Apr. 20 after hopping an airport fence and climbing into the wheel well of a Boeing 767.
Since the event, calls for higher airport security have been raised.
A California congressman called for the Transportation Security Administration to test perimeter alert systems at several U.S. airports to see if technology can help prevent future breaches.
Hawaii's child welfare office has no further involvement in the case.
