S-10 Blazer noise

I am hearing a high pitched noise almost like a leak in a baloon, or a vacume leak of some sort coming from the passenger side kick panel area in my 1997 Chevy S-10 Blazer..(please note that the sound is ONLY coming from the interior passenger side kick panlel area)
I'm sure that it is not a door seal leak because the sound occurs whether the vehicle is moving or not)
The sound is intermittent, is not audible from the exterior or under hood area of the vehicle, adjusting the heater controls or radio does not affect the noise.. the sound only eminates when the vehicle has been driven for a few miles.. if you shut off the vehicle for a few minutes and then restart it will be silent for a little while (a couple of miles, and then begins again)
it is driving me insane!!!!
has anyone had this happen??
any input would be greatly appreciated..

Had a similar problem years ago with an intermitten balloon noise coming from the passenger side, but only when my wife was in the car...turned out it was her passing gas......KIDDING. I believe your vent doors are vacuum operated, this may be the problem. or debri has gotten in to the vent, and you don't have a completely closed door and you hear the air rushing in. You're not going to know for certain until you open the kick panel and look to see what it is.
