Authorities have called off the search for a missing hot air balloon on Lake Champlain, saying they no longer believe the tip that they received is credible.
Authorities say they got a call at around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday from witnesses who claim they saw a balloon hit the water near Rouses Point, N.Y., and disappear. That prompted a search involving multiple departments including the U.S. Border Patrol.
The dark night made the search difficult for crews. The search lasted more than four hours before it was finally called off.
