NEW CLUE IN THE SEARCH FOR AMELIA?

Amelia Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan.

(National Geographic) – Four bone-sniffing dogs that were brought to the remote
Pacific island of Nikumaroro to search for traces of Amelia Earhart have identified
a spot where the pioneering aviator may have died 80 years ago.

The dogs, four border collies named Marcy, Piper, Kayle, and Berkeley , arrived
on the island on June 30 as part of an expedition sponsored by The International
Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) and the National Geographic
Society.

Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, disappeared on July 2, 1937, on their
way to Howland Island — 350 nautical miles northeast of Nikumaroro along the
line of position that Earhart outlined in her last confirmed radio transmission.

During a violent storm on his first return voyage, Columbus, then approximately
41, suffered an attack of what was believed at the time to be gout. During later
years, he was plagued with influenza and other fevers, bleeding from the eyes,
and prolonged attacks of gout. The suspected attacks increased in duration
and severity, sometimes leaving Columbus bedridden for months at a time,
and culminated in his death 14 years later at age 54.
