This is a question I asked at Math.SE but got no answers: http://math.stackexchange.com/q/397164/7110/

Atiyah and Hirzebruch showed in their paper "Vector bundles and homogeneous spaces" that $\mathrm{K}^\ast(X) \otimes \mathbb{Q} \cong \mathrm{H}^\ast(X; \mathbb{Q})$, where $\mathrm{H}^\ast$ denotes singular cohomology, if $X$ is a finite CW complex.

Somewhere on the Internet I saw the statement $\mathrm{K}^\ast(X) \otimes \mathbb{Q} \cong \check{\mathrm{H}} {}^\ast(X; \mathbb{Q})$, where $\check{\mathrm{H}} {}^\ast$ denotes Cech cohomology, if $X$ is a compact Hausdorff space.

First, I'm looking for a reference for this fact $\mathrm{K}^\ast(X) \otimes \mathbb{Q} \cong \check{\mathrm{H}} {}^\ast(X; \mathbb{Q})$.

Second, can the statements be extended to non-compact spaces, i.e., do we have something like $\mathrm{K}^\ast_{\text{cpt}}(X) \otimes \mathbb{Q} \cong \mathrm{H}_{\text{cpt}}^\ast(X; \mathbb{Q})$ for (locally finite) CW complexes? Or something analogous for the Cech cohomology and locally compact Hausdorff spaces?
