Her plane disappeared on July 2, 1937, during a flight to become the first woman to circumnavigate the globe. After countless searches, officials found no sign of the pair or their aircraft.

The "crash-and-sink" theory suggests that Earhart and Noonan died after the plane ran out of fuel and crashed into the vast Pacific Ocean.

Of course, any story about Amelia Earhart is something I read and share, but this story was different.

Now Shawn Henry, a former executive assistant director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation - and the History Channel - have come forward with the two-hour documentary Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence that premieres on Sunday, July 9 at 9 p.m. ET and attempts to answer this question. This documentary focuses on evidence presented by a former Federal Bureau of Investigation official. Second, it's hard to ignore the man with a receding hair line and bone structure so similar to Fred Noonan's stands on the left side of the photo that it might as well be an exact match.

The picture in question, seen above, has been carefully studied by forensic photographic experts and historians, according to

However, experts are saying the photo does appear genuine and unaltered.

Not everyone agrees with what the documentary claims. The History Channel team believes that the photo was taken by a US spy who the Japanese authorities later captured and executed.

"We don't know how she died". "People take photos and interpret them, and they're free to do that", she said.

The documentary goes on to allege the USA government covered her capture up in order to save face, according to TMZ. "What's important to me is her legacy".

She was the first female to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. Her fate has been a figure of fascination, and professional and amateur investigators have offered many theories over the years on what happened to the daring pilot. Others have postulated that she and her navigator, Fred Noonan, may have survived the ordeal and made it onto an island, where they could have survived for days, or even weeks, before ultimately succumbing to starvation or dehydration. According to People, this explanation has always been a conspiracy theory about Earhart's disappearance, but Henry says the photograph makes it more of a real possibility than ever before. The U.S. Coast Guard cutter Itasca was following Earhart and Noonan's flight path. Communications between the pilot and Itasca were broken up by static. "Have been unable to reach you by radio".
