Family, friends release balloons for Baby Lisa
The family of missing baby Lisa Irwin says they have no idea where dozens of yellow and purple balloons will land today. But, they know each one carries an important message.
The parents, Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley released the balloons from their front lawn. They tied a paper note to all 150 balloons, hoping they will remind people Lisa is still missing.
Usually the balloons and strings land where wildlife become entangled, or attempts are made to eat them and they choke to death or they swallow them and get intestinal obstructions and die. The rest end up as litter.
Flyers passed out to another person by hand is a very effective method. Unlike notes attached to balloons, the flyers don’t land on the streets, highways, river, fields and trees where no one will ever find them.
