It seems very doubtful.
"There are claims that one of the world’s great aviation mysteries - the disappearance of 1930s airwoman Amelia Earhart - has been solved in Papua New Guinea.

Locals also say they have found gold bullion in the wreckage.
But Ric Gillespie, an expert on Earhart’s disappearance, says the claims are “silly beyond description”.
