    I get nothing from the link but based on what I've heard there's a photo that supposedly shows Earhart, Fred Noonan and possibly the plane wreckage. It's been theorized for years that they went down and were captured by the Japanese as spies.

    I think this is all hype for an upcoming TV series. There are several groups who collect donations for their explorations and investigations into the great 20th Century mystery. It makes a pretty good living and steady income for supporting what is basically a hobby.
    Like all the other past reports and TV series, they will end with a promise to go back and explore more clues and continue the search to end the mystery followed by more solicitations for donations and funding.

    I tend to agree. We see all the advance advertising for such programs promising progress, but the one thing they never do is actually find Amelia or sasquach.

    Remember when they found her living as a housewife in New Jersey? That was a hoot, and a heck of a hoax, scam, whatever.

    The theory that they might have made Gardner's Island in more Plausible. The Navy searched for something like 2 weeks and found nothing. This was a fairly small plane in a large ocean. Considering larger airliners have gone missing without a trace in the ocean Earhart and Noonan probably are on the bottom of the ocean.
