Air Force experts analyzing satellite images say they've found what may be signs of adventurer Steve Fossett's track in the rugged terrain near Death Valley in Nevada. This weekend planes and ground crews will comb an area stretching 100 miles southeast of the airstrip Fossett  took off from Sept. 3, reports the AP.

"It gives us an idea, if it's him, what direction he was going," says the head of the search. Planes searching for Fossett were grounded last week when no trace of the 63-year-old millionaire had been found in several weeks. A private search effort by his family and friends continues.  (More Steve Fossett stories.)
