Video has surfaced a close call incident of a hot air balloon that came very close to crashing and police are looking for the public's help.
Sycamore Police on Wednesday asked for the public's assistance in locating the balloon that flew over the north part of town in the late afternoon hours. On social media, the Sycamore PD posted:
