As the giant balloon carrying the six-year-old-boy Falcon Heene landed in a dirt field in Prospect Springs, near Colorado Springs, authorities found the balloon to be empty. Falcon is nowhere to be found.

The balloon that carried him was not meant to carry anyone, and the small compartment in which he sat was very unstable. At this time, authorities do not believe Falcon fell out in mid-flight however. Thus, they are now feverishly searching the Fort Collins neighborhood where is from.

Stay tuned to for updates as they come.
