The National Guard, Civil Air Patrol and others are continuing the search for record-setting adventurer Steve Fossett. His small plane vanished sometime Monday in Nevada.
Millionaire adventurer Steve Fossett vanished somewhere across a landscape of soaring peaks and sagebrush desert notorious for winds so powerful and tricky they can swirl an airplane like a leaf and even shear off a wing.
The search for Fossett dragged into a second day Wednesday with some false leads but no sign of the 63-year-old aviator or his plane.
Some veteran pilots speculated he may have fallen victim to the treacherous and sometimes deadly Sierra Nevada winds that squeeze through the narrow canyons.
