From what I understand, it's an experimental craft the family was biulding, and a reporter said they were told it was NOT intended to fly, but flying it is! It's losing helium. It's also expected to reach Metro Denver within the hour. icon_sad.gif

Oh how the plot has thickened. Hmmmm. Praying he didn't fall out somewhere along the way, and HOPING he's just been hiding under his bed anxiously anticipating the butt whooping for letting that thing go. Interesting.

I sure hope he is hiding, I don't think I could do anything to him but hug him to death

If this is a hoax they need to press charges and make them pay for the expense of the whole thing.

My nerves are shot! After my daughter's near drowning trauma two months ago I can't handle stuff like this.
Omygosh I hope they've found him. I hope he is OK! I am praying he is just hiding some where they haven't looked because he is scared of being in major trouble. This is heart breaking!

Oh, that poor baby! I just read that the compartment he crawled into wasn't attached very well. I wish they would hurry up and find him!!

OMG they are searching for the box that he climbed into that was attached to the bottom of the balloon but the box was not attached when the balloon landed. So they are searching the ground where the balloon flew for the box. They haven't found him.

Fox News just reported that witnesses claim they saw something fall off of the balloon above the neighborhood.

Depending on your time zone- Sean Hannity (a.m. radio) is keeping pretty much on top of it. Fox News is a good place.

This is so dumb. they had 2 hours of footage of that balloon and you mean to tell me the parents not once looked at it and saw the box was missing!

They should have been searching a LOOOOONNNGG time ago for him!

They also are saying they are not sure about the path the balloon took. I am sorry but somebody way up in command is watching footage of stuff like this and would be able to give an exact detailed rout of that balloon.

Why can't the sides of this get connected and figure it the heck out!

That little boy is laying in a crumpled box with massive injuries if he is even still alive by this time some three hours later.

Oh now, that's not something to put in your head. Think about something else. They'll trace his route and do the best they can.
