Searchers have found what appear to be two large human bones near the crash site of adventurer Steve Fossett's plane.Authorities returned to the site in California's Sierra Nevada Wednesday for a last search before winter. They discovered the bones about a half mile east of where Fossett's plane was discovered earlier this month. They also found Fossett's shoes and his Illinois driver's license.

The Chicago adventurer disappeared while flying in September of 2007.

Fossett's widow, Peggy, said the discovery is, "another step in the process of completing the investigation into the tragic accident that took Steve's life."
