wow!
I just read the updated story as well and they're saying that after no child was found in the balloon they searched the house but he wasn't there either... The reporter on the scene said the family is 'known to be strange' ... kind of a harsh comment to make about a family don't you think?

They ARE very strange. You should have seen the Wife Swap episode it really showed you their lives.

I'm relieved that the story has a happy ending, but what were his parents thinking with a name like Falcon Heene?

They probably figured "With a name like Falcon, he's not going to be hanging around in abandoned mines, like his older brother, Mole."

Shows like "Wife Swap" are largely staged. They give a jaded view of the lives of partcipants.

Are you claiming that reality shows are...factual and accurate without any editing to dramatize the outcome for ratings?
