    Authorities are investigating how a missing man from Virginia ended up in what’s supposed to be a secure area of Kennedy Airport, soaking wet on a runway after he allegedly swam across Jamaica Bay, law enforcement sources tell News 4 New York.

    Mark Mogensen, who’s in his early 20s, was reported missing from a mental
    health facility in Sterling, Virginia, that he’d entered voluntarily on July 14.

    On the morning of July 16, Port Authority police officers spotted Mogensen, wearing a shirt and shorts, completely soaked, on a runway at JFK Airport, the sources
    said.

    When the officers asked Mogensen how he’d gotten there, he said he swam across Jamaica Bay and climbed a perimeter fence. That fence, part of a multi-million dollar
    security plan, is supposed to be secured with alarms, radar and cameras.
