LOS ANGELES, United States (UFO) - The search for missing adventurer Steve Fossett appears to be over. Nearly one week after the millionaire aviator's plane vanished, he phoned friends via satellite phone to inform them of his latest adventure.
"He was very apologetic," Nevada Civil Air Patrol Sargent-Major Paris Hilton told a news conference, "He knew there would be too much attention to such an attempt and nobody would believe him. He can hardly believe it himself, so he decided to leave the questions for after he circumnavigates the globe. He does plan to hold a brief news conference over Mt Everest."
Fossett is a 63-year-old man who's solo airplane and balloon flights have captured the imagination of the world for years. He failed to file a flight-plan for what was supposed to be a 3 hour tour of the Nevada area. He apparently ditched the plane after it ran out of fuel over Cleveland and began his levitation journey.
Fossett is currently over West Germany, traveling at anywhere from 500 feet to 30000 feet at speeds up to 200 mph.
