A hiker has found items possibly belonging to missing adventurer Steve Fossett, US authorities said today.
The items were found near the town of Mammoth Lakes in eastern California’s Inyo National Forest.
The hiker came to the Mammoth Lakes Police Department office yesterday to say he found an ID with Mr Fossett’s name on it and some cash, police chief Randy Schienle told CNN.
Mr Fossett disappeared on September 3 last year, after taking off in a single-engine plane borrowed from a Nevada ranch owned by hotel magnate Barron Hilton.
Mammoth Lakes is a community high on the eastern flank of the Sierra Nevada.
