Is It A Balloon Is It Boy No Its Just A Balloon Thanks God!

 

Updated : Oct 16, 2009

A six-year-old boy who was feared to have floated away in a homemade helium balloon has been found alive, US police say.

Falcon Heene was discovered hiding in a box in the attic above the garage at the family's home in Fort Collins, Colorado.

The silver, flying saucer shaped balloon, which is about 20ft across, had drifted off after coming loose from its moorings - thought to be with Falcon inside.

The boy's brother said he saw the six-year-old climbing into the contraption before it became untethered.

The runaway balloon soared up to 7,000ft in the air and reached speeds of 25mph.

It drifted for miles across the Colorado skies before landing gently in the desert after slowly deflating.

Rescue workers, who grabbed the object as it floated down to the ground, opened it and failed to find Falcon.

Speaking after Falcon was discovered at the family home, Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden said: "The boy's been there all the time.

"He's been hiding in a cardboard box in the attic above the garage.

"I don't want to make a conjecture, but this is not the first time when we have been involved in searching for some child.

"And once the child realises people are looking for them, they hide because they're afraid they're going to get in trouble."

Dozens of police and rescue workers had been involved in the search for Falcon and there had been concerns he may have fallen from the craft.

A spokesman for the Colorado National Guard earlier told Sky News the boy's brother had said he saw him fall out of the balloon but that report "was unsubstantiated".



Eloise Campanella of Larimer County Sheriff's Department had told CNN: "The bottom of (the balloon) is contained and hasn't been breached.

"So at this point we are thinking he did not fall out of it. He has to be somewhere on the ground near his home."

VHP has a huge mass so has no hope of any balloon floating him away!
