Evidence indicates Earhart's final stop
There are human remains being checked for a DNA match. A jar that contained oinment used for freckels. Radio signals that are known to have existedm but were not recongized at the time. Then there's the photo taken just months after the disappearance of the Lockheed Electra that show a piece of landing gear stuck int he sand - the gear was not every considered important because the photo was of a ship that ran aground. Lastly, there's sonar that indicates a mass at the bottom of a reef near the same South Pacific atol where Amelia Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan likely landed their plane and died. Without an official delcaration I will say it, "Earhart's been found!".
Earhart and Noonan
Gardner Island, now known as Nikumaroro Island. The spot in "beach" in lower right is location of landing gear seen in old photo below.
Who knew at the time that this was the likely resting place of Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan. The Electra is likely at the bottom of the reef right below that landing gear. This photo was taken a few short months after the disappearance.
