Amelia Earhart, 39, & Fred Noonan, 44, New Guinea to Howland Island, 2 July 1937
It's the coldest of cold cases, and yet it keeps warming to life. Seventy years after Amelia Earhart disappeared, clues are still turning up. Long-dismissed notes taken of a shortwave distress call beginning, "This is Amelia Earhart...," are getting another look.
The previously unknown diary of an Associated Press reporter reveals a new perspective.
A team that has already found aircraft parts and pieces of a woman's shoe on a remote South Pacific atoll hopes to return there this year to search for more evidence, maybe even DNA.
If what's known now had been conveyed to searchers then, might Earhart and her navigator have been found alive? It's one of a thousand questions that keep the case from being declared dead, as Earhart herself was a year and a half after she vanished.

The book "Searching for Amelia" is fantastic. I get the willies each time I absorbed into her disappearance.

i did not know about the young ladies that heard the short-wave radio transmissions. while i do not doubt the sincereity of either of these women, i do wonder if someone was just on the short-wave pretending to be amelia. did the word "hoax" even exist back then? i guess regardless, the result is the same, amelia never found. a very sad ending to such a romantic adventure.

I tried to get this today but our library system has only one copy so I got put on a waiting list. The book store didn't have it so I either have to wait or get it online. I'll probably go ahead and buy it. The AP actually put out a longer version of the story, but I was unable to find it on the wire at work this weekend.

There was a bit today in the Rocky Mountain News about this today. Intriguing mystery as to what happened to her and Noonan. They pictured a heel from a shoe and a piece of plexiglass found on an island.

I read the article in the newspaper a day or so ago and was very intrigued. I came away with the impression that had people been aware that Amelia was truly lost, a more intensive search might have been conducted in the area where she last reported being.
The article mentions the heel from a (possible man's) shoe was found, as well as an woman's entire shoe. Since this is an island where the natives did not wear shoes, it is intriguing to speculate where these items came from.
I think someday this mystery will be solved once and for all.

Amelia Earhart, 39, 1937
I have searched this site for a thread on Amelia Earhart and cannot find one. I find this hard to believe! Earhart's disappearence is the most famous cold case and tantalizing missing persons case in history and I thought for sure I would find a thread about her.
It is possible she just crashed but there is a lot of theory's that she went down in the Marshall Islands and was captured by the Japanese and even speculation she was on a special top secret mission under FDR to 'crash' in the Marshall Islands and gather info. 2 teens with transistor radio insist they heard Amelia's distress calls the day after she disappeared. One of those people was still alive when the below article was written and she still insist on what she heard. At the time she had written it down in a note book and her father contacted the Coast Guard. Considering some of the artifacts that have been found on Gardner Island it seems plausible they crashed but survived for awhile.
As far fetched as some of these theories may get I find her disappearence fascinating.
Please point me in the direction of a thread about her on here if there is one and I shall delete this.
