MINNEAPOLIS (WXOW) - Police at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport are looking for a man carrying a stuffed animal who got inside a secured building.

Around 9am Wednesday morning, a Delta Airlines employee encountered a man inside Building C.

When asked to produce an identification badge, the man held out a stuffed animal and said, "This is all you need to see."  He then fled the building.

Police and security staff searched but did not find the individual.  Airport canine explosive detection teams searched an adjoining hangar but found no trace of explosives.   

He was described as a black male 19 to 22 years old.  He was carrying a stuffed animal with a leopard print.
