Claims have surfaced of aviator Amelia Earhart's plane wreckage being found in Papua New Guinea.
The wreck was reportedly found off the coast of Bougainville and is said to be filled with gold bullion and guarded by a large snake, experts however have downplayed the find as "silly beyond description". Local businessman Cletus Harepa has been paying to have divers inspect the wreckage and claims that they've recovered two skulls from the plane's cockpit.
