Chicago court: Missing millionaire adventurer Steve Fossett dead

A judge in Chicago has declared millionaire adventurer Steve Fossett legally dead, five months after his plane disappeared over the Nevada desert. Fossett vanished in September after taking off in a light plane, and a long search produced no trace of him. A judge heard testimony Friday from Fossett's wife, Peggy, and a family friend as well as a search-and-rescue expert before deciding there was sufficient evidence to declare him dead. Fossett was a record-setting balloonist, sailor and pilot who completed nonstop flights around the world.
