The 6-year-old Colorado boy who is believed to have set adrift a helium balloon Thursday, prompting ground and air searches, has been found alive, authorities said.

He was found in a box in the attic at his family's Fort Collins home, according to authorities.

A sibling said he saw the boy, identified as Falcon Heene, get into the craft Thursday morning, authorities said.
