Bone find may end mystery of Amelia Earhart`s disappearance
London: A tiny bone fragment discovered on a desert island may finally answer the questions surrounding legendary woman aviator Amelia Earhart`s disappearance.
It could prove that Earhart, lived as a castaway instead of dying when her plane crashed into the Pacific Ocean, reports the Sun.
The bone, which is apparently a part of her finger, was discovered on the tiny south Pacific atoll of Nikumaroro.
Among other finds were pieces of a pocketknife, make-up from a woman`s compact and old American bottles.
Experts have suggested that Earhart, who disappeared in 1937 on a round-the-world flight, was probably marooned there with her navigator Fred Noonan.
Scientists are hoping to obtain DNA from the bone to prove it came from Earhart.
