The State Department plans to join a new effort to find the plane of pioneering aviator Amelia Earhart, 75 years after she mysteriously disappeared over the South Pacific.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood will take part in a ceremony Tuesday morning announcing the joint public-private search at the State Department, The Wall Street Journal reports. The event, "Amelia Earhart, a Pacific Legacy," which is pitched as a celebration of the U.S.'s pan-Pacific ties, will be streamed live at 9 a.m. on the State Department's website, a spokesman for the agency said.
Earhart's twin-engine Lockheed vanished July 2, 1937, as she and her navigator, Fred Noonan, left New Guinea (now Papua New Guinea) on their way to Howland Island in the South Pacific as part of an attempt to circle the Earth.
The half-million-dollar search, financed with private funds, will begin in July.

It will be found by Jessie Jackson. Turns out Amelia was black.
Mote wasted money.
She’s dead and they don’t need a body for her to vote in Chicago. Let it go, even her friends are dead. No one really cares.
I was thinking the same thing. Not really anything of any importance to be learned from it.
Japanese soldiers captured and ate her.
I’m all out of caring about Earhart.
Those 15 minutes were up several years ago.
Why? We should spend massive amounts of money to follow up on this? If curiosity is strong enough, academia or private investors should take up the challenge, not the taxpayer.
If you are thinking ... what massive amounts of money ... just wait.
Somehow, somewhere, this plane will mysteriously show up and the media will be praising Obama about it.
Well the KONY thing didn’t work out. Let’s find Earhart’s plane in October.
Screw these people. We are going to come to a hard place like this.
She hasn’t paid the DMV tax in all these years.
You can’t fool the taxman by being “dead.”
Maybe WH polling is showing that this “Condom for the women’s vote” is not working.
I heard that they may have captured her, but nothing of the consumption.
It did say it is being funded privately.
Why don’t they ask me? I know where the plane is. It’s at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.
An administration that can't find its own ass with a compass, mirror and flashlight is going to find Amelia's plane. The age of miracles hath not passed. Affirmative Action Ani at work again!
Maybe this Metrosexual Mombasa Marxist MF and his commie cohort can find me some gasoline while they're at it. I have a better idea. Find the frickin' plane and lose frickin' Barack.
