Didn't she end up delivering the real Lindbergh Baby to DB Cooper?
This might be one of those events that people would rather debate about than solve; there is some value to coming up with reasonable conjectures as to what happened - if only as a Gedankenexperiment. I really don't know much about the "searches" for her, but I wonder if she had any family who are as interested as some of the general public?

She had a younger sister, who passed away about 20 years ago. I think she was interviewed for one of the books about the Marshal Islands/Saipan research, but I don't recall the details.

Possibly some SOS calls.

Amelia Earhart’s Chilling Pleas for Help May Have Been Discovered


Quote:
Just hours after her plane disappeared over the Pacific Ocean, Amelia Earhart — the woman who, in 1937, set out on a mission to be the first to circumnavigate the globe — sat in her defunct Lockheed Electra surrounded by knee-deep water, stranded amid the reef of a tiny, uninhabited island, new research suggests.

Earhart’s disappearance has been shrouded in mystery for decades; her death was declared in absentia two years after she was lost at sea. Now, over 80 years later, researchers have a new theory as to what may have happened. According a recent paper, which analyzed radio distress calls in the days after Earhart vanished, she may have spent her last days marooned on a desert island after her plane crashed on July 2, 1937.
The final days of Amelia Earhart: Researchers analyze the haunting distress calls made by the pilot and her navigator after their disappearance, in new attempt to piece together the last week of her life

I don't believe anything that TIGHAR puts out to justified their never-ending search. They came to their conclusion that she landed on Gardner Island, and they won't be dissuaded from that belief, even though there is absolutely NO EVIDENCE whatsoever she was anywhere near that island.

This subject has always fascinated me, but until there is NEW evidence, I will consider the mystery of her disappearance to be unsolved.

I agree with this. I think the evidence points to her being captured by the Japanese, and the US government covering it up. Someone working on that theory was going to make a film about it, but IDK where that film project stands, right now.

Nobody will change my mind on those beliefs.
This is what I have always thought. However, I am open to other ideas.

Yup. Especially when they outfitted a popular American icon's plane with spy cameras, "in case" she "got lost" and crossed into enemy territory.

It makes sense.
