  • Its unlikely to be true.
  • Slim - the Japanese wouldn't have had much interest in her, and actually would have liked the positive propaganda value of assisting her if she had an accident or had gotten lost.
  • From what Ive read not much of a chance.
  • From the little evidence and possible evidence found so far, probably extremely unlikely. The most tenable scenario at present seems to be that the aircraft exhausted its fuel through faulty navigation, they crash-landed near or on an uninhabited island and eventually succumbed to starvation, thirst and exposure.
  • Slim. Its much more likely they ran out of fuel and crash landed on an uninhabited island.
  • I read she disappeared in the Pacific Ocean en route to Howland Island from Lae, Papua New Guinea, in which case she wouldn't have gone via Japan, so it's highly unlikely.
  • The Japs would have no reason to shoot her down because we weren't at war. The Japs weren't ready for war either and not willing to take on the US before they were ready., so the chances of shooting her down are slim. It would have complicated matters. Also the idea that FDR had sent her on a secret mission is bogus because he had professionals who would furnish more accurate information.
  • Back then, it would be likely the Chinese did.
  • If they shot her down they could have benefited from the propaganda value. If they rescued her they could have benefited from the humanitarian value. The fact that they would had such a high value target and said nothing tells me they didn't have her. I don't think the Japanese got her.
  • they probably didn't enough time has passed if they did a historian would of found it by now I doubt we'll ever know what happened to her.
  • Go buy a history book. She disappeared in 1937 - there was no war going on that she would have had any value.
  • It is a possibility
