    Deputies chase boy floating in balloon aircraft
    Cops: 6-year-old takes off in family's experimental helium-balloon craft

    NBC, msnbc.com and news services
    updated 12 minutes ago
    FORT COLLINS. Colo. - Authorities were scouring the skies Thursday for a 6-year-old boy who reportedly unhooked his family's experimental balloon-powered aircraft and floated away from home, sheriff's officials said.

    The Larimer County Sheriff's Department said the boy's family had been building an experimental aircraft that had a large helium balloon attached to it at their home, KUSA-TV reported. The aircraft was approximately 20 feet by 5 feet and covered in tin foil, the station said.

    On Thursday morning, according to the family and officials, the boy got onto the aircraft and detached the rope holding it in place. Sheriff's spokeswoman Eloise Campanella said the boy climbed into the access door and the airborne device took off.

    Several people in the neighborhood said they saw the aircraft floating over their homes and some snapped pictures.

    Officials were scrambling to figure out how to rescue the boy.

    The craft, which is shaped like a flying saucer, has the potential to rise to 10,000 feet, Campanella said. Sheriff's officials last saw the device floating south of Milliken, which is about 40 miles north of Denver.

    There was no one inside, apparently -- was this whole thing a hoax?

    If he was in it he must have been just a lil shaver. I don't believe he was ever in it.

    I've read elsewhere this couple were on the show Wife Swap. Lends to the hoax theory as a way to get attention for themselves. I hope it is a hoax for the kids sake.
