NEW CLUE IN THE SEARCH FOR AMELIA?

(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.
