Boy in the Balloon Appeared on 'Wife Swap'

10/15/2009 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: The boy was not in the balloon when it landed.

The boy currently flying over Colorado in a homemade flying saucer appeared on "Wife Swap" back in March.

Boy in the Balloon Appeared on 'Wife Swap'
Six-year-old Falcon Heene's family is described as "storm-chasing, science-obsessed Heene family from Colorado" on the show's website -- and sure enough, in the background of the family photo, there's another flying saucer.

no they probably killed him and they made up this story to cover their tracks (make it look like he fell out somewhere over the miles and miles it travelled)and he will never be found.

Or he's alive and he is in sooooooooo much trouble!

Ironically the other family they switched wives with was a family obsessed with SAFETY. The mother of this 6 year old had no interest in the subject of safety. She wanted her kids "to live freely" - safety only would put "fear in her kids". The mother and father were both screwballs. Maybe this incident will finally wake them up and possibly become responsible parents.

YEAH....That epi was crazy. The dad was NUTS and totally blasted the other mom and his wife seemed to be brainwashed by her crazy husband. They basically let their kids do ANYTHING they wanted, incl. dangerous things. They slept in their clothes instead of pjs so that they could chase storms in the middle of the night along with shooting rockets to the aliens...NOT NORMAL!!!!!!!

My best friend is the 4th grade teacher at Werner Middle School where the 3 boys attend. They have conferences today, and that is why they were not in school.

Prayers are useless. A crap shoot. Someone actually believes they'll get answered? What about the billions of prayers that get ZERO results??
