Long-lost letter from Amelia Earhart's navigator sent from Indonesia to the US just eight days before they disappeared in 1937 is discovered in San Diego 

A long-lost letter detailing Amelia Earhart and her Captain Fred J. Noonan's adventure around the globe has been discovered nearly 84 years after the pair went missing.

The handwritten, 17-page letter is postmarked just eight days before the duo issued their last radio call from somewhere over the Pacific Ocean.

It was mailed on June 23, 1937 from the Grand Hotel in Indonesia and contains specific details of dates, locations and weather challenges that Earhart and Noonan faced along the fateful flight path.

The letter is one of four discovered by San Diego-resident Hunter Person, whose mother found them rolled up in her father’s desk 40 years ago.

Person’s grandfather was a close friend of Noonan and the two had exchanged letters for years and even up until the captain disappeared.
