    where is the child?????
    His sister or brother said he fell out.

    well, they are saying it is believed that he was never in it, and about 20 ppl on the ground are searching the area around his home, for him.
    We haven't heard that they have spoken to any of the family so far.
    The balloon traveled for over an hour, before coming down in a field, where they immediately looked inside,...no child, and then let the helium out.
    His dad is a retired meteorologist, and this balloon is homemade. I hope they find him safe, very soon. He is six years old.

    It's made the news here too..... same as above, they say the balloon has landed and he's not inside.

    Fingers crossed he's just hiding somewhere afraid he's going to be in trouble.

    Yep, he and his brother (who knew he wasn't in the balloon) are both in trouble. But i bet the Dad is a bit more careful in the future. at least i hope so. Men never think of the dangers of anything.
