Modern Day Disappearance

Steve Fossett has disappeared. Fossett was the first person to circumnavigate the globe in a balloon, and in recent years he has gained fame as an adventurer, cheating death time and again in his successful pursuit of a variety of records.

Apparently, he went up in a single-engine plane, possibly to scout locations for an attempt at breaking the land speed record. Should have been a milk run. It should have been a 2-hour flight, and he had four hours of fuel and clear skies. He took off Monday morning...and hasn't been heard from since. By Tuesday evening, more than 10 aircraft were scouring a large chunk of desert, and no traces have been found. Searching will continue Wednesday morning.
