As the search for Steve Fossett is ended now except his family continueing searching for him, even Richard Branson now believes that his friend is dead.

Branson announced to name the first SpaceShipTwo as "Spirit of Steve Fossett" in honor of Fossett.

No, they found 5 old wreckages but no sign from Fossett and the search was called off October 3, one month after he disappeared.
