Reports are coming out of Mammoth Lakes, CA that a Nautica fleece sweater, $1005 in cash and 3 IDs with Steve Fossetts name on them have been located near Ridge Lake.
Preston Morrow of Mammoth Lakes found the items a few days ago but didn't know who Steve Fossett was. A second search of the area found no sign of the famous sailor and flyer.
This is far from the previous search area for Steve Fossett and will undoubtedly re-focus the search to the Mammoth Lakes area. There is a large snow storm coming in a few days while will likely cover any possible wreckage until the spring. The area is technically in Madera county but search teams from Mono county are helping in the new search.
