Falcon Heene, 6, sits in front of his family home on Oct. 15, 2009 in Ft. Collins, Colo., after a widely televised hoax in which his siblings had erroneously reported that he was riding aboard an experimental balloon built by his father, Richard Heene. Falcon was found hiding in the attic of his home. Media helicopters, military aircraft and the FAA all assisted in tracking down the wayward balloon, the flight of which was broadcast live across the nation.

Larimer County sheriff’s spokeswoman Eloise Campanella says the device, which is shaped like a flying saucer, has the potential to rise to 10,000 feet.
