Dateline: MINDEN, Nevada.-Sheriff John Shultzerberger has announce that the search and rescue for missing billionaire and adventurer Steve Fossett will begin anew now that it was discovered that the person they pulled out of the Nevada desert is not in fact Steve Fossett as the man claimed but an imposter.

“We were all taken in and now precious hours have been lost” stated a clearly angry Sheriff. When asked why they mistakenly airlifted a 6’02” three hundred pound man claiming to be Fossett out of the parking lot of a Minden Dairy Queen, the Sheriff responded, “He informed my deputies that he had decided to attempt the world record for corndog eating and they believed him.”

Suspicion quickly mounted when the imposter upon arriving at the airport where this tragic event had started, did not immediately take out another single engine airplane into the desert to break Fossett’s previous survival record.
The Sheriff has stated at the press conference announcing the re-commission of the search that his department was looking into filing charges against the Georgian Kudzu salesman.

Meanwhile this paper has been contacted by the Fossett foundation and informed that they will not be seeking to break the current world record of fake Fossett-search news stories and are pleased to leave the current world record at one.
