(CNN) -- Officials are trying to rescue a 6-year-old boy who climbed into a balloon-like experimental aircraft built by his parents and floated into the sky over eastern Colorado.

The aluminum-covered, dome-shaped balloon is 20 feet long and 5 feet high, Larimer County Sheriff's Office says.

Margie Martinez of the Weld County Sheriff's Office said a sibling saw the boy climb into the basket before the balloon took off. Since the door on the balloon was unlocked, Martinez said it's possible the boy had fallen out.

The balloon appeared to be a saucer-shaped, Mylar-coated helium balloon, not unlike a party balloon. The craft was drifting eastward, authorities said.

The helium balloon was tethered to the boy's family home in Fort Collins, the Larimer County Sheriff's Department said. The boy got into the craft Thursday morning and undid the rope anchoring it.

Jesus now that I'm watching the live feed, that thing is going REALLY fast.
...
What if the kid's not even in there?
What a waste of time
But in all seriousness, that's actually a lot more dangerous than I thought.
He needs to do a barrel roll.

..does it look like the balloon thing is just going in circles around the camera to anyone else?
They aren't following the airship all of the time. It's repeated footage.

You're really going to try and start a conspiracy theory about a 6 year old floating away in a balloon?

Yes. If no one else will, I will.
His entrapment in the air is symbolizing how we cant protect our kids from 2012

not because he passes the same things over and over, but I mean because if you look at the ground in the background, the roads look like they're in a grid pattern, but it looks like he's going in a circular motion over the (what I'm assuming are) relatively straight roads..


I'm not starting a conspiracy theory, just saying... its making me pretty damn dizzy

edit: I'm still watching.. it mightve just been the first like, 30 seconds I watched that had a weird camera angle or something..
..still makes me dizzy

this kid is my hero now, even though he's younger.
And he landed, i'm not sure whether to be happy or sad. I missed most of it
