Radar data revives hunt for Fossett

Teams on the ground and in aircraft kept hunting for millionaire aviator Steve Fossett on Sunday after a new analysis of radar data provided fresh optimism.

Radar and satellite images from Sept. 3, the day Fossett, 63, disappeared in a small plane, led Air Force technicians to believe they had spotted clues to his route. The formal aerial search by the Civil Air Patrol and the Nevada National Guard had ended Sept. 19. Nothing was found by Sunday afternoon, however.
