Searchers are still searching for aviator Steve Fossett in rugged terrain in Nevada.
Fossett, whose balloon exploits have made him famous, disappeared six days on a flight to look for an area to attempt a land speed record.
He filed no flight plan.
Fossett has a home in the Vail area and many friends in the Colorado business and aviation community.
As many as 45 planes have been up looking for him.
John Bugler, a long-time friend, said nothing has been found.
The 63-year-old Fossett adventurer is a skilled survivalist who has scaled some of the world's highest mountains and survived several failed attempts to circle the globe in a balloon.
He finally made it.
He was inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame in July.
He told a crowd gathered at the Dayton Convention Center in Ohio that he will continue flying.
The Wings over the Rockies Museum in Aurora planned to give him another award in November.
