Amelia Earhart Found Where?

Amelia Earhart disappeared over the Pacific Ocean while attempting to circumnavigate the world. Her mysterious disappearance has been a source of speculation and conspiracy theories since 1937.

It has been 72 years since famed aviator Amelia Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan disappeared while attempting to fly around the world.

A bone could solve the mystery of Amelia Earhart. The finger bone, believed to be Earhart's, was found on an island off the Pacific Ocean, do you know where exactly?

Do you think the Amelia Earhart will be finally solved? I think these bones will prove Amelia Earhart died as a castaway in the Nikumaroro Island.

There are several theories as to what happened to Amelia Earheart on that fateful morning. The official theory is that she went down in the Pacific, either due to lack of gas or a technical malfunction.

Some believed that she and her partner Fred Noonan actually survived the plane going down but were captured and enslaved by a group of natives on Howland island.

Bones of a dead person were found in Nikumaroro Island. Scientists at the University of Oklahoma hope to extract DNA from the bones, to determine if they belong to Amelia Earhart.

It could be months before scientists know for sure and it could turn out the bones are from a turtle. The fragments were found near a hollowed-out turtle shell that might have been used to collect rain water, but there were no other turtle parts nearby.
