Missing six-year-old balloon boy, Falcon Heene's parents once appeared on ABC's hit reality TV show Wife Swap.

"The Heene family from Colorado live life on the edge. Wife Mayumi (43) and storm  scientist Richard (45) take their three kids, Bradford (8), Ryo (7) and Falcon (5), out of school to go on storm chasing missions to prove Richard's theories about magnetic fields and gravity," the site said of the family. "If conditions are right, Mayumi wakes her family by shouting "Storm Approaching, Storm Approaching!" into a bullhorn. The family sleep in their clothes so they can leap out of bed and into the storm-mobile."

Six Year Old Not Found Floating In Balloon

One of Falcon's siblings reportedly saw the six-year-old crawl into the balloon like experimental structure that was tethered in the family's back yard around 10am PST.

The balloon was spotted flying high in the skies for approximately two and a half hours before landing softly in a field. There was no sign of Falcon and there is concern that the little boy may have fallen out of an unlocked door on the craft sometime during the flight.
