KIRIBATI – The bones of Amelia Earhart have been found. Along with the bones of Gilligan and Ginger!
Scientists at a DNA lab on Kiribati, a small island in the southwest Pacific Ocean, confirmed that bone fragments they found belong to American icon Amelia Earhart, missing and presumed dead for the past 73 years.
Even more startling was the discovery of the bone fragments of Gilligan…
A group of Bone Hunters from Delaware, found the bone fragments on Kiribati, which straddles the equator between Hawaii and Australia.
Jack Maloney, director of the Society for Historic Bone Recovery, said that the island was on Earhart’s flight path as she attempted to become the first woman to fly around the world.
The bone fragments were found this past summer at what is believed to be an abandoned campsite on the island. The campsite, where a partial skeleton (which was later lost and never recovered) was found in 1940 by a British official overseeing the island, has yielded other clues that a Western woman may have spent time there.
Over the years, a woman’s shoe, a glass bottle with trace amounts of lanolin and oil and makeup products have been found on the scene. Other findings, including evidence of the cooking and eating of local sea life, were noted, as well.
“It looks like she landed successfully on the reef surrounding the island. It’s very flat and smooth,” Maloney said. “At low tide, it looks like this place is surrounded by a parking lot.”
Anthropologists who worked on the expeditions that yielded the bone fragments, sent to the Molecular Anthropology Laboratory (MAL) in Bayonne, which has the capacity to extract DNA from both modern and ancient samples.
The director of the MAL, John Malley, said that the bones “were an exact match to the DNA to Amelia Earhart. We are 99.99% certain, it is her.”
Malley went on to say that the bones of Gilligan and Ginger were also 99.99% accurate. There were no signs of any bones from the Skipper, The Professor or Mary Ann.

Clearly the bones of the Skipper, Professor and Mary Ann are missing because Gilligan and Ginger were forced to resort to cannibalism. They should be sifting through the midden for human bones showing tell tale signs of mechanical dis-articulation and pot polish.
What about the Professor & Maryanne?
Please retract previous comment – I see now that Mr. Malley already addressed the other castaways.
The Skipper ate Gilligan, bones and all, so it can't be him.
To clarify..there is no truth to the rumor that Gilligan's bones were found on top of Ginger's
what about that rich couple that lived on thje island? They probably are on a fast boat to china to get a loan to to pay for thier tax refund. Hopefully our grand children will live on the island in years to come so they will not have to pay the loan back.
This has nothing to do with what you're talking about.
and they wonder why they have no credibility !
THAT IS SICK!! :p
my name is amelia :3
I thought she was in the bermuda triangle.
who are gilligan and ginger?
Are you saying you never saw Gulligan's Island?
How on Earth would they know the DNA of someone who died in the 30s? 😛
How can they be sure it is Amelia's bones?
This is probably a joke. Gilligans Island was a t.v show and ..,. i dont know
I thought Amelia was in the Bermuda Triangle.
Right, maybe it's a joke. They found her in an island but people said she was in the Bermuda triangle. This is nuts! ( Copied that from Michelle Tanner/ Full House)
I'd eat MaryAnne
I would put her on the news
