Steve Fossett Update

MINDEN, Nev. (AP) -- Rescue crews looking for millionaire adventurer Steve Fossett plan to concentrate on 600 square miles in Nevada when the search resumes.

A spokesman for the rescue effort says crews from the Nevada Air National Guard, Civil Air Patrol and Fallon Naval Air Station are resuming their aerial search this morning.

Conditions are much better than yesterday, with calm, mostly cloudy skies.

Yesterday, an aerial search that included 14 aircraft conducted grid searches over 7,500 square miles.

The plane was carrying a a locator that sends a satellite signal after a rough landing, but no such signal had been received.

Fossett took off alone Monday morning from an airstrip about 70 miles southeast of Reno. A friend reported him missing when he didn't return.
