Ms Crockett commented, “It was really very exciting to receive the call from the woman in Spry Harbour. It’s been a week since the balloon first broke loose and to date, nobody else has seen or reported any sightings.  We’re hopeful that someone else will keep their eyes on the sky to help us find and recover our lost balloon.”

When asked about her expectations for the balloon’s return Ms Crockett was optimistic. “It has about 15 days of helium inside so were hoping to get another spotting so that wee can recover it and bring it back to our community. With the current track and wind direction, its possible it will come back in over Nova Scotia or if it continues south, perhaps Boston or Bermuda or maybe the Azores. Either way we are hopeful and encourage anyone who spots the balloon to give us a call. ”
