Researchers believe they are on the verge of solving one of aviation's greatest mysteries - the disappearance of Amelia Earhart. DNA evidence to be collected from Nikumaroro Island will reportedly show that she had ended up stranded there.
It has been 72 years since famed aviator Amelia Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan disappeared while attempting to fly around the world. But the mystery remains unsolved: Nobody knows exactly what happened to Earhart or her plane.

"What Elgen needs to explain is, who sent all those radio distress calls in the days following Earhart's disappearance? He'll say that the Coast Guard later proclaimed them to all be hoaxes and misunderstandings. That is true. It is also true that the Coast Guard had no basis for saying that," Gillespie said. "Either Earhart was on land somewhere south of Howard Island and North of Samoa or there was a hoaxer in that region who had the capability of sending signals on Earhart's frequency and could mimic Earhart's voice and information about Earhart that only Earhart and her closest associates ...

Not sure what sort of food would be available on the island, and I sure wouldn't want to leave family and friends behind, but I just looked at the mentioned island through the satellite view of Google Maps and it is a beautiful place!

It'd be good to know for sure what happened to the lady. Even this far after the fact, she's still a pretty amazing gal.

I know there are a lot of theories out there but I saw one years ago. I can't remember what show it was on. I think it was PBS. But they were saying at that time that she went down in, I think it was Germany, and they killed her and buried her right in the field where they shot her. And there was a lady that was claiming to have witnessed it Edit to say I just did a search on her flight so it apparently wasn't Germany. I don't remember where it was but the theory was that she was murdered.

Everyone knows she was kidnapped by aliens and taken to the otherside of the galaxy and frozen in a cro-tube along with 37 others...she will be woken up in the future by Captain Janeway and the crew of Voyager... lol http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_37's LOL I was going to say she was on the lost island with jack and all.
