Declassified Photo May Reveal That Amelia Earhart Was Captured By The Japanese

The mystery surrounding the disappearance of Amelia Earhart has remained one of the world’s greatest mysteries for the better part of 80 years. There have been theories, conspiracy theories, legitimate archeological expeditions in search of her remains but results remain inconclusive. However, a picture from the late 1930s has emerged that from Japanese-occupied territory that may indicate that Amelia Earhart was taken as a prisoner.
The general consensus accepted by the public is that Amelia Earhart ran out of fuel over the Pacific and crashed into the ocean. Yet, Earhart was a skilled aviator and if problems arose it was more than likely that she would find a location for landing. For decades rumors have circled claiming that she crash landed an island in the Pacific but little evidence demonstrates this.
Former FBI investigator Shawn Henry has uncovered a photograph from the national archives may show Earhart’s whereabouts. The picture is from the Marshall Islands in the late 1930s showing a Caucasian woman sitting on the docks with a boat towing what appears to be a twin engine plane. The photograph also shows another Caucasian man with a striking resemblance to Fred Noonan, her navigator.
The investigation claims that Amelia Earhart may have in fact been a spy and captured by the Japanese after landing on the Marshall Islands. Only a few details have been revealed about the investigation by Shawn Henry inspired by a blurry picture. However, many experts, analysts, and historians do weigh in the claim in Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence which airs on the History Channel this Sunday. A preview of the investigation is included in the link below, do you think it is true or just another seeing things?
