NEW YORK, NY — A newly discovered photograph may solve the mystery of Amelia Earhart’s disappearance, NBC’s Tom Costello reported Wednesday morning on Today.
The discovery of the photo and its analysis is featured in a new History Channel special, "Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence," which at 10 p.m. Sunday.
Earhart was last heard from on July 2, 1937, as she tried to become the first woman pilot to circumnavigate the globe. Earhart was declared dead two years later after the U.S. concluded she had crashed somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. Her remains were never found.
Investigators said they have found evidence Earhart and Fred Noonan were blown off course, but survived a crash landing in a Marshall Islands.
The photograph was discovered in a long-forgotten file in the National Archives.
