Branson: Fossett Probably ‘No Longer With Us’

Tycoon Richard Branson says that his friend Steve Fossett is probably “no longer with us.”

Fossett, the thrillseeking millionaire, disappeared in a small airplane over Nevada on September 3rd and has not been seen since. Branson made his remarks on NBC’s The Today Show, noting that “I think everybody involved has pretty well given up hope, sadly.”

The Associated Press is equally pessimistic and notes that if anyone is to find Fossett’s plane, it may be a hunter or prospector.

Fossett is now firmly entrenched, along with flier Amelia Earhart and musical inventor Leon Theremin, in our loop on famous Disappearing Acts.
