Wreckage Spotted in Fossett Search
The New York Times
“California authorities said they have spotted wreckage of a plane in an area where a hiker discovered identification cards belonging to Steve Fossett, the millionaire adventurer who vanished more than a year ago after embarking on a solo flight.
“The wreckage was spotted during an aerial search over the rugged east-central California mountains late Wednesday. Ground crews dispatched to the site were expected to determine on Thursday morning whether the plane indeed belonged to Mr. Fossett, the Associated Press reported. Authorities were being cautious because the terrain in the area is rough and thickly forested, and a number of other planes have disappeared there in the past.”
