The cards are FAA cards according to Fox.

Also a sweat jacket was found.

Fossett was reported to have been wearing a sweat jacket.

Hikers are in the police dept. as I type this planning a search.

They are within 80 miles of Nevada.
many other persons have searched for Steve Fossett with no results.

If you're the famous aviator Steve Fossett, two dozen people who know you are dead will still hunt for you anyway.


-------------------------------------------------------
They'll get excited at finding scraps of blue cloth in the Nevada desert, and chunks of rusted metal. And even after they give up, they'll vow to come back.

That's how things sat Wednesday, as the latest and most promising team to attempt this summer to find the millionaire adventurer and the wreckage of his airplane called it quits after two weeks.

This is breaking news as of now.

Yes i hope this brings some peace to the family.

On the CT side speculation of a connection with Fossett and the missing nuke?!

As well as maybe a military shoot rumor!

Thanks for the post.

Any more info on how the cards were found???Just lying around.....or placed like a trail of bread crumbs? Survival training tells you that if you move, try to leave a trail that can be followed. Maybe he crashed and went looking for water....

According to MSN.com, a hiker had found a few of what appears to be Fossetts belonings.

They include:
-ID card with his name
-2 laminated cards (no idea if they have his name on them)
-10 $100 bills and a $5 bill
-And finally, one piece of clothing

No body? No evidence. I still hope he left to go work with the secret mars/lunar projects...

Thread starred and flagged.

Several ways those items, but nothing else, could be found like that.

- Fossett dropped them while trying to walk out from the crash site
- Animals dragged them there from the crash scene
- plane came apart in mid-air and items rained down over a wide area
- items landed/dropped in deep snow and washed there as it melted

and I'm sure many others.

They may not find much of the body.
The Mammoth Lakes area is known for bears and mountain lions.

Did he survive enough to get out of the plane or did creatures pull his body from the plane.
Or did the plane come apart and is small pieces scattered over a mountain.

I have hiked to crash sites in the sierras and have found both types.

I am getting traffic on the 155.16 national S&R radio freq on my scanner, but I can only get bits as i live at China Lake Calif about 120 miles south of mammoth lakes.

I can see why they did not find him before this area is outside the original search area.

When I heard that over $1,000 was found with his belongings, that
told me that he was not the victim of a crime. Wow..perhaps he did
go with alien visitors. Wouldn't need ID or $$$. But the plane..where
is the plane? This story is becoming fascinating again.

That theory......the one where he was in debt and faked his own death.....

Why did he have at least $1000 cash on him? Most people, even if they have lots of money......don't need that kind of CASH on them. Usually they would have credit cards and whatnot. Any ideas? Did he always have that kind of cash on his person?

Its not solved until a dead body is found.

Finding his belongings without a body doesnt solve the mystery, it adds to it.

As when Steve first went missing, I still feel that he was offered
an adventure that he couldn't refuse. The fact that his belongings
(incl $1,000 in cash) were found all together in one spot reaffirms
that belief.

Steve will come back, barely aged, in a couple hundred years to
see how we've progressed...or regressed.

EDIT TO ADD: There was no tracking beacon on Steve's plane
activated and he didn't have a cell phone with him. This is more
mysterious than Emelia Earhart!

Your correct it does add to it, and especially since there has been no plane wreckage found. Seems like plane wreckage would show up before an id badge would don't ya think?

I still think that he found a stargate and is now in a different dimension. I doubt his body or plane will ever be found.

Come to think of it...yeah...it does add a lot to the mystery. Clothes found, but entire plane and body missing.

I guess he stepped into the other dimension nude

STILL more questions than answers.....

I dunno about that nekkid dimensional hopping program yet....

Well, I guess this isn't going to be an Erhart like never ending mystery after all. I'm certain we will hear more by this weekend. I know If I was in the area I'd be out there looking already.

To a billionaire $1000 cash is pocket change for a few days worth of meals or some fuel when the card system is down etc. or whatever else you need that might require cash. What's interesting is that he had 10 - 100's and a five. The five would be for something small where they might not be able to make change for a hundred. That sounds more like an emergency kit than a billfold. Unless that's how he always operated - taking the same amount of cash from the safe as he leaves the house. Not everyone pays for everything with cards and not everyone takes them.

I've climbed, backpacked and hiked all over many areas of the Sierras around Tahoe, southern and Tahoe Yosemite trail in California, but not Mammoth Lakes. I can see by Google Earth it is more accessible than many other areas it could have been, so that is good. Staging for the new search will be at Mammoth lakes likely.

Still the actual aircraft could be anywhere. That no other parts where immediately found is curious if the aircraft broke up in flight or the canopy was opened or otherwise broke off. Heavier material would travel with momentum from the air and the lighter material falling generally where it was released. But if the found paper was found in a localized area it was not high likely when ejected or released, indicating a lower altitude.

I would search south and southwest of the found evidence first, assuming that was the direction of flight. But, he could have had trouble and was turning toward level landing ground east. Impossible to say anything at this point. Too many variables.

How convenient.

If I was going close a case, I'd need a piece of id and something else familiar.


Hmmm OK, and FAA Id card and what was he wearing? A sweater or something..ok good got it....case closed!
