Hikers Find Potential Fossett Evidence

Cash, I.D. with Steve Fossett's name found in Calif.

More than a year after his disappearance, a few hikers have found what could be items belonging to missing adventurer/billionaire Steve Fossett in California, not far from the original search zone.

A sheriff from Mammoth Lakes, Calif., reports that hikers in the area discovered cash and I.D. that could belong to Steve Fossett.

That’s far from definitive evidence, as it could belong to any old Steve Fossett out there, as opposed to the billionaire financier/balloonist from Beaver Creek. Still, it’s the only lead in an otherwise perplexing case of disappearance.
