After the History channel said last week that a hidden and mislabeled photograph suggested aviator Amelia Earhart survived her final flight, the channel announced Tuesday that it is investigating claims that a Japanese blogger made against the authenticity of the photo, NBC News reported.

The blogger on Tuesday wrote that the photo was actually taken two years before Earhart disappeared in 1937 and does not show Earhart. The photo also appears on Japan’s national library website with a publication date of 1935.

“History has a team of investigators exploring the latest developments about Amelia Earhart, and we will be transparent in our findings,” the channel said in a statement on its Twitter page. “Ultimately historical accuracy is most important to us and our viewers.”

History aired a two-hour special on Sunday about the photo in an effort to help clear up one of the 20th century’s greatest mysteries.
