When Does Hope Expire?


I've been following the Steve Fossett search closely as I'm fascinated by his disappearance.  Fossett took off September 3rd and hasn't been seen or heard from since.  Crews are now combing a rugged area near Death Valley going on new leads from Air Force experts.

Fossett is as experienced a pilot as there is.  He's been missing 23 days and counting.  Barring a miracle, Steve Fossett is likely dead.

This begs the question, when does hope expire?  When do newspapers run Fossett's obituary?  When do we acknowledge a man's death when he's disappeared into thin air?
