New effort to find Amelia Earhart

Famed aviator Amelia Earhart and her navigator, Fred Noonan, pose in this file photo in front of their twin-engine Lockheed Electra in Los Angeles at the end of May, 1937, prior to their historic flight in which Earhart was attempting to become first female pilot to circle the globe. A clear plastic shard found on Nikumaroro island in 1977 matches thickness and curvature of the Lockheed Electra windows.  <span class=meta>((AP Photo, File))</span>
