Authorities in rugged eastern California say a hiker has found items possibly belonging to missing adventurer Steve Fossett. INYO National Forest spokeswoman Nancy Upham said Wednesday a hiker found the items near the town of Mammoth Lakes.

Fossett disappeared September 3, 2007, after taking off in a single-engine plane borrowed from a Nevada ranch. In 2002, Fossett became the first person to circle the world solo in a balloon. He also set a pair of flight records that began in Salina, Kansas.
