One part of the complex mystery of Steve Fossett's disappearance 14 months ago may have been solved with the discovery of bones, a pair of shoes and his driver's license. "We talked to the family and advised them that we possibly, most likely, found the remains of J. Stephen Fossett," Madera County Sheriff John Anderson told a news conference Thursday.

Fossett disappeared in September of 2007 while on a flight to scout locations for a land speed record attempt. The wreckage of his Super Decathlon was found a month ago and a bone fragment was also found at the wreck. It turned out to be from an animal. DNA tests are being conducted on the bones.
