(AP) A group trying to solve the mystery surrounding famed aviator Amelia Earhart is reporting encouraging results from its latest expedition to the central Pacific.


Ric Gillespie is head of The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery, which is based in Delaware. He says high-resolution video taken in July shows what appears to be a debris field of manmade objects in the waters off an atoll that is part of the republic of Kiribati (KEER-uh-bus).


Gillespie says the debris field is in the same area where an object that the group says could be a landing gear can be seen sticking out of the water in a 1937 photograph. That photo was taken shortly after Earhart and Fred Noonan disappeared on an around-the-world flight.


Gillespie says analysis of video from the July expedition is continuing.
