Legendary adventurer Steve Fossett, who hasn’t been heard from since Monday, was still missing as of this morning. Rescuers have expanded the search grid to 10,000 square miles—an area about the size of Massachusetts—since few solid clues have emerged as to his whereabouts.

Apparently his single-engine plane had enough food and water for him to survive about two weeks. But that might not be enough time. Rescuers say the ravines and mountain ranges that make up much of the terrain have made the search effort difficult.—Gregory Mone
