Charges may reportedly be filed against the parents of a young boy believed to have floated away in a giant balloon.
Colorado (WiredPRNews.com) – Last week, authorities were frantically searching for a young boy believed to have floated away in a giant balloon. Now authorities are stating the incident was part of a plan devised by his parents to help the family land a reality television show. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the parents of Falcon Heene, Richard and Mayumi Heene, may be charged with a felony for the alleged hoax.
Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden is quoted by the AP as stating of the six year old child’s whereabouts during the five hours authorities were searching for him, “For all we know he may have been two blocks down the road playing on the swing in the city park.”
Authorities are still investigating the matter.
