Nikumaroro Island: Amelia Earhart Found?
Has Amelia Earhart been finally found? Amelia disappeared July 2, 1937. Earhart was an aviator and pioneer. She became the first woman to win the Distinguished Flying Cross after being the first woman to solo across the Atlantic.
Now researchers at the International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, or Tighar, say they are on the verge of recovering DNA evidence that would demonstrate Amelia Earhart had been stranded on Nikumaroro Island, formerly known as Gardner Island, before finally perishing there.
Other artifacts found on the island support the view that Amelia Earhart could have lived there for a while as castaways.
What happened to Amelia Earhart? Did she run out of fuel and land on Nikumaroro Island, and die there as a castaway?
