Can Google Find Steve Fossett ?

British billionaire adventurer Richard Branson hopes that Google Earth can help find his friend and fellow adventurer Steve Fossett who disappeared four days ago when he went out for a short recreational flight in a single engine plane. See Reuters story.

Feb. 5, 2007, we wrote about the massive web search for missing scientist Jim Gray. The search for Gray, on the ground and through technology, did not yield results. It is mystifying and humbling that with all our technology and resources well-known and well-loved people, equipped with fierce intelligence and instincts for survival, can simply disappear. Will Fossett be found today?
