Search for Steve Fossett Resumes

July 15, 2008 12:00:00 AM PDT
Ten months after aviator Steve Fossett was reported missing, a new ground search team has set out to find him.The ten member group, led by a Canadian geologist, is looking for Fossett in remote, wooded areas in the Sweetwater Mountains on the Nevada-California border near Bridgeport. It's the area where Fossett was last seen.

They said the areas they're focusing on could conceal wreckage not visible to the many private and military planes that searched last year.

The group is financing the search on their own.

They'll be out there through Friday or Saturday, covering about 15 to 20 miles every day.
