AVIATOR DISAPPEARED ON THIS DAY IN 1937

On July 2, 1937, the Lockheed aircraft carrying American aviator
Amelia Earhart and navigator Frederick Noonan was reported
missing near Howland Island in the Pacific.

The pair were attempting to fly around the world when they lost
their bearings during the most challenging leg of the global
journey: Lae, New Guinea, to Howland Island, a tiny island 2,227
nautical miles away, in the center of the Pacific Ocean.

The U.S. Coast Guard cutter Itasca was in sporadic radio contact
with Earhart as she approached Howland Island and received
messages that she was lost and running low on fuel. Soon after,
she probably tried to ditch the Lockheed in the ocean. No trace
of Earhart or Noonan was ever found.

On the morning of July 31, 1975, James Riddle Hoffa, one of
the most influential American labor leaders of the 20th century,
was officially reported missing after he failed to return home
the previous night. Though he is popularly believed to have
been the victim of a Mafia hit, conclusive evidence was never
found and Hoffa’s fate remains a mystery to this day.
