Live footage from a local TV helicopter showed the balloon gliding quickly through the air. 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. Sheriff's officials last saw the device floating south of Milliken, which is about 40 miles north of Denver. Campanella says the 6-year-old climbed into the access door and was in the airborne device. FAA spokesman Mike Fergus says the agency has been notified and it was unclear whether traffic controllers had picked it up on radar. THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE.
