Bone fragments found on a deserted island are being DNA tested to see if they could be Amelia Earhart's.
The fate of famed aviator Earhart has never been determined after she mysteriously disappeared during an attempt to become the first woman to fly around the world in 1937. If the bones turn out to be hers then it suggests she crashed in the Pacific and survived for a time as a castaway on a desert island.
"The three bone fragments turned up on a deserted South Pacific island that lay along the course Amelia Earhart was following when she vanished."
