The mystery of the disappearance of the first woman to fly alone across the Atlantic Ocean may be solved.

A new study by the University of Tennessee's Richard Jantz says bones that were found on a Pacific Island in 1940 may have been misidentified and could actually have been the bones of Amelia Earhart.

This follows another theory that Earhart survived a crash landing and was taken prisoner by Japanese forces in the lead up to World War II.
