    Re: Another round on the fate of Amelia Earhart in today's news

    Using cadaver dogs is not as far fetched as it may sound

    I have encountered one item published on the Internet where the cadaver dog located a toe bone, under 6 feet of soild, which was carbon dated to 670AD.  http://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/article10068794.html

    Cadaver dogs were recently brought in to search the cellar, in the Etan Patz case (1979).  https://mobile.nytimes.com/2012/04/24/nyregion/investigators-end-search-for-etan-patz.html

    Given the date of disappearance in July of 1937, and Amelia's corpse actually be on the island where the dogs are brought to search,  it is likely that the cadaver dogs will find said remains.  What is highly problematic, of course, is that requirement.  That the corpse is located on the island.

    With the 80th anniversary of Earhart's last flight coming around day it should be no surprise that TIGHAR is back in the news with their latest expedition (12th?).  Having failed at aerial reconnaissance, divers, manned submersibles, ROV's, and exhaustive land searches, they are now going to the dogs.  Four border collies have been brought in to sniff out Amelia's final resting place.
