NTSB: Remains found at Steve Fossett wreckage site
MAMMOTH LAKES, Calif. (AP) -- Federal investigators said Thursday they found human remains amid the wreckage of missing adventurer Steve Fossett's airplane in the mountains of eastern California. The remains were found among a field of debris that stretched 400 feet long and 150 feet wide in a steep section of the Sierra Nevada.
Some personal effects also were found at the crash site but investigators would not describe them in any detail.
"We found human remains, but there's very little. Given the length of time the wreckage has been out there, it's not surprising there's not very much," said National Transportation Safety Board acting Chairman Mark Rosenker said. "I'm not going to elaborate on what it is."
