I think the guys alive, I think he parachuted out of the plane and planted those items for people to find. He may have gotten tired of his life and the pressure it brought and decided to live a much calmer and simplier life somewhere else. I think if his family looks hard enough they might find the clues.

Imagine what went through the hiker's mind when he found Fossett's identification. What a surprise huh?

Lab, your material is getting soft. New granddaughter maybe? Get back to your roots man! In no particular order... start a drunken bar tussle; verbally abuse a minimum wage employee of your choice; road rage on the elderly or infirm; harrass some school children. When you're good and agitated come back and try again. You need to get your edge back!

The Mammoth Times reported that the wreckage was found at 10,000 ASL just east of the Minarets. I know these mountains very well, and I find it hard to believe that the plane wasn't spotted before. There are frequent backpackers camping and hiking near the lakes below the Minarets, although the area is very rugged and remote. The weather can change on a dime in those mountains too, so this could be the reason he ran into trouble.
Go to Google Maps and put in "Cecile Lake, ca" as a search, and you will see this area.

Some dude had a heart attack on I-95 and ran of the road into some bushes.

He wasnt found for 5 years and he was right on the highway.

He killed himself. Flew into the side of a mountain and shattered to pieces. A mountain lion or bear dragged the bottom of his torso and pants some distance away to consume it.
