I just heard the reporter in the helicopter saying that he just got a report that the kid's OK,



edit:
Oh man, now he's saying...

Didn't we just hear Molly saying that the boy was OK?

Any mention of him any where else yet?

I'm amazed how fast that guy was running! He totally almost caught that balloon. CNN is saying that the boy wasn't inside. I hope that he didn't fall out. That'd be horrible.

Kids not in the balloon as far as the reports are saying.

They will soon mention where the kid is im sure.

Bet the fathers annoyed that his fake UFO attempt went wrong.

Hope the kids ok.

Looks like this might have a happy ending when it comes to the kid.

Ya we have those same cars around here that the police use. The police that are by our the airport are in black unmarked chargers.

I hate it how the news is saying, that he shouldnt have had the balloon and there is no reason to have it. Come on, what if the guys just feel like having it for fun. Everything doesnt need to have a reason that make sence to everyone else.

Praying is all good, but don't thank God when he's safe, you wouldn't thank God if he wasn't safe...even though you really should since "God is good".

Looks like they're doing a ground search in the local area.

No, there's been no mention of the boy's whereabouts. CNN is reporting that no one knows where he's at. The same for a local source (I believe) that is the headline on Drudge.

It doesnt make sense to leave a untied hot air ballon around a couple of kids. No excuse for it.

early flight picture of balloon over rooftops shows NO basket under the balloon

in other words if the kid was actually in it then he detached the basket at or below 300-400 feet.

my opinion

If its a hoax:
What will happen...will there be legal consequences? Laws regarding hoaxing?

This is hilarious. Anyone see the show Wife Swap? The dad was on the show and the swap was a strict overprotective family vs. a very loose family (this family) that wanted "kids to be kids" and basically said that kids are meant to get hurt, its a part of growing up. Basically encouraged to do dangerous things and now this happens, the dad was sort of a nut, pretty childish.

Well if it was a hoax.

Thats just way below the belt saying your kid might be in the balloon.

I dont think it will be long until its cleared up in terms of what actually happened.

That makes sense why the father and mother would have made a balloon like that. Stormchasing.

Update:
Balloon craft lands in Colorado field; Fort Collins boy not found


Updated: 10/15/2009 01:53:23 PM MDT

Rescuers and paramedics are with a "homemade flying saucer" that just came down in a field, but the fate of a 6-year-old who was on board is unknown.

Rescuers on the ground told their dispatcher the boy was not inside.

Officials and the boy's family had said he was in the gondola when it went airborne this morning; it's unclear what happened to the boy.

The incident started this morning in Fort Collins when the boy got into the balloon-like device built by his father and it came loose from a tether.

The balloon craft belongs to Richard Heene, whose son, Falcon, is now missing.

Officials from Larimer, Weld and Adams counties worked this afternoon with the Federal Aviation Administration and assistance
from the 9News helicopter to track the balloon and rescue the boy.

Margie Martinez, spokesperson for the Weld County Sheriff's Department, said during the flight that officials were not sure the boy was still in the balloon. She said they are sure the child was in the balloon when it took off, but that it was impossible to look into the gondola.

Richard Heene is an amateur scientist based out of Fort Collins. He and his partners call themselves the "psyience detectives."

Heene is a storm chaser who collects data to prove that rotating storms create their own magnetic fields.

He began his research in 2002 with lab experiments, then moved on to dust devils. In 2005, he flew a plane around Hurricane Wilma's perimeter.



My prayers go to this boy
