Amelia Earhart Goes Missing
By: Ali G.
New Hampshire, Age 10


6/4/1937

Today Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan just went missing. They had to land in Florida because the wind was too strong. They tried to fly again from Florida to California. They departed on June 1 in Miami.
A month later they arrived in Papau, New Guinea. Twenty hours later Ameliaís voice is picked up by a radio near the island. The crew and the plane never made it to the island.
President Roosevelt personally authorized nine naval ships and sixty-six planes to help search for them, but they couldnít find anything. Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan havenít been seen since.
