Balloon Lands in Colorado, but No Sign of Boy
October 15, 2009 - 3:54 PMA homemade balloon aircraft landed in a Colorado field but there was no sign of the 6-year-old boy believed to be inside. Rescue crews surrounded the balloon that landed Thursday afternoon in a field after two hours in the air.
Cathy Davis of the Larimer County Sheriff's Department told reporters the balloon was owned by the boy's parents and tethered behind the family's home. She said two sons were playing outside when the older boy saw the younger one go into a compartment at the bottom of the balloon and fly away.
