UPDATE: Found in a box in the family attic. Probably grounded. The end.
6-Year Old Falcon Heene (above, center) is presumed to have been floating alone in a hand made air balloon thousands of feet above the bong smoke and granola filled state. The balloon, however, has finally touched down and the kid is no where to be found. From CNN:
A runaway balloon has touched down in Colorado after a 6-year-old boy untied it from his family home in Fort Collins.
The boy was not inside the helium aircraft when it landed, CNN affiliate 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’ Fort Collins, Colorado home.
Since 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. The craft was drifting eastward, authorities said.
My fingers are crossed that this young man is found unharmed. As for the question you’re inevitably asking right now (what kind of fucking parents does this kid have?). The answer is they’re a bunch of whackadoo storm chasing retards, of course.
They were also featured on an episode of Wife Swap where a risk-taking family switched wives with a safety-obsessed family. Guess which one the Heene’s were.
There’s an awesome video of Richard Heene losing his shit on the show, but it’s since been removed from Youtube. I’ll post it here if it shows up in another video form.
