CNN reports that hikers in northern California have found clothing and personal items possibly belonging to millionaire adventurer Steve Fossett, who went missing a year ago.

Mammoth Lakes police chief Randy Schienle told CNN on Wednesday that a sweatshirt and other identification possibly with Mr Fossett's name on it had been found by hikers in the area.

Mr Fossett, 63, vanished in his airplane after taking off in the Nevada desert in September 2007.
