  • The family was on Wife Swap back in March I remember the episode. My husband was watching this with me and said that looked like the ballon we saw on that show. I started looking it up when they anounced they had been on the show. My husband thinks they did something to the kid. I don't know but they were really odd people so nothing would surprise me. They could claim he was abducted by aliens. They were that weird.

  • Yeah I was just watching that on the news!! Pretty weird story huh? The balloon landed, but he's not in there. It was in the air for 2 hours, so he could be ANYWHERE!! I sure hope they find him.

  • I am hoping he is hiding somewhere near home, afraid of getting in trouble. That family was crazy on wife swap!
