On July 2,1937 Amelia Earhart disappeared and was trying to be the first women to fly around the world.She probably was running low on fuel when she landed on Nikumaroro Island,really small island some 1800 miles south of Hawaii.In 1940 some artifacts were found by local islanders that have since been lost.New evidence by a team called the International Group of Historical Recovery believe they have found enough evidence to link it to Amelia and her fellow navigator Fred Noon.Tiny human bone fragments,broken pieces of glass from the time period,a small knife,parts of bones from fish and birds near a campsite,and shells used as cups to catch rain water were found near by.No one knows how long they could have survived.Perhaps days,months or years.One thing researchers think is that they did survive on the small island.
