MAMMOTH LAKES, CA - Some of lost air-adventurer Steve Fossett's personal belongings may have been found in the California woods not far from the Nevada state line, prompting a new search, FOX News learned.

Preston Morrow, a local ski shop owner, told FOX News that he was hiking alone with his dog near his home in Mammoth Lakes on Monday afternoon when he stumbled across what appeared to be three cards with Fossett's name on them that were issued by the Federal Aviation Administration in Illinois, as well as ten, $100 bills.

Morrow, 43, returned to the site on Tuesday to get a GPS reading of the site when he spotted a sweatshirt on top of a ridge

Morrow then brought the items back home to his wife, a local fire captain, Mammoth Lakes Police Chief Randy Schienle told FOX News, correcting earlier reports that she found the cards and bills. He then turned the items over to local police Wednesday after unsuccessful attempts to contact Fossett's family.
