New clues in 70-year-old disappearance of Earhart |

New clues in 70-year-old disappearance of Earhart | "Seventy years after flier Amelia Earhart disappeared over the Pacific, clues still turn up.

> Long-dismissed notes of a shortwave distress call beginning, 'This is Amelia Earhart . . .'

> The previously unknown diary of an Associated Press reporter, surfacing after decades.

> Old notes on a now vanished partial skeleton, re-examined by a University of Georgia forensic osteologist.

> Aircraft parts and a woman's shoe on a remote South Pacific atoll.

If what's known now had been known to searchers then, might Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, have been rescued? 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."
