PostSubject: 6-year-old missing after balloon lands in Colorado   October 15th 2009, 11:32 pm

A balloon that was set adrift by a 6-year-old boy from his parents' Colorado home was found empty, CNN affiliate KMGH said, citing a police report.


The balloon landed south of Prospect Springs, Colorado, Thursday afternoon.

The boy was not inside the helium aircraft when it landed, KMGH reported.

A sibling saw the boy get into the craft Thursday morning. Officials were concerned that the boy may have fallen out of it, an undersheriff said.

Margie Martinez of the Weld County Sheriff's Office said a sibling saw Falcon Heene climb into the basket before the balloon took off from his parents' home.

Because the door on the balloon was unlocked, it's possible the boy had fallen out, Martinez said.

The balloon appeared to be a saucer-shaped, Mylar-coated helium balloon, similar to a party balloon. Watch the balloon float thousands of feet over Colorado ยป

The helium balloon had been tethered to the boy's family home, the Larimer County Sheriff's Department said. The boy got into the craft Thursday morning and undid the rope anchoring it.

The department said the dome-shaped balloon is 20 feet long and 5 feet high.


"The structure at the bottom of the balloon that the boy is in is made of extremely thin plywood and won't withstand any kind of a crash at all," said Erik Nilsson, Larimer County emergency manager, according to CNN affiliate KMGH.

A dispatcher received a call Thursday morning, and emergency services personnel were contacted

I think this was all a hoax! The boy has been found and the family has participated in the show wife swap http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/nsw-act/balloon-boy-falcion-heenes-family-are-tv-wife-swoppers/story-e6freuzi-1225787397044?referrer=email&source=DT_email_nl so it was probably all done for publicity!
