A 6-year-old boy named Falcon Heene climbed into a homemade helium balloon and accidentally took off. The balloon has landed, but Falcon wasn’t inside, suggesting he fell during the flight. UPDATE: the local sheriff says: “The basket itself was not breached.” But also: there was a box attached to the balloon with pegs, and it fell off, and Falcon was allegedly in the box. So. FINAL UPDATE, ONE HOPES: He was found at home, safe and sound and hiding out.
