Search for Amelia Earhart's plane continues in Marshall Islands

Updated 2 February 2015, 12:31 AEDT

A team of Americans searching for Amelia Earhart's plane has returned to Majuro after five days of work on remote Mili Atoll -- a Japanese military base in World War II and the location where the group believes Earhart's plane went down on its trans-Pacific flight in 1937.

Meanwhile, the Marshall Islands' economic reform efforts have been described as "sluggish" by the latest audit of the government.

Editor of the Marshall Islands Journal, Giff Johnson, says the team searching for Earheart's plane is yet to find concrete evidence she did go down in Marshall Islands.
