A Budweiser blimp that was on the loose above New Brunswick has been found, a company spokesman says.

The blimp - nicknamed Red Zeppelin - was located in a wooded area, "one that's not particularly easy to get to," Wade Kelly of the Labatt Breweries' Atlantic office said.

Now they have to figure out who owns the property so they can go in and retrieve the blimp.

The 70-foot-long blimp broke free from its tether at a Saint John ball hockey tournament on Saturday, Transport Canada reported.

Kelly said the blimp is partially deflated, but they don't know whether it just lost air or if there is a hole in it.

"Until we get it out we won't know exactly what state it's in," he said, adding he is hopeful it can be repaired and "will be back up in the air" soon.
