WASHINGTON (AP) — A Pentagon spokesman says the body of a teen stowaway was found and removed from a compartment above the rear landing gear of a U.S. Air Force C-130J cargo aircraft after it landed at a military base in Germany.

Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby said the stowaway was a black male who may have been of African origin. He said the plane stopped in several African countries before it arrived Sunday at Germany’s Ramstein air base.

Kirby said the body was found during a routine post-flight maintenance inspection of the cargo plane. He said the body had been turned over to German authorities for autopsy, and the matter is under investigation.

He said it is not known when or where the stowaway entered the landing gear wheel well.
