Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370: Search Area For The Plane Grows

Posted:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

What happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370? It's a question no one has an answer too and many are wondering why.

U.S. officials say the plane might be at the bottom of the Indian Ocean. The search area for the Boeing 777 has been expanded to include areas north, west, east and south of Malaysia.

With six days of guesses and no answers families of the people on the plane are fed up. It's been an agonizing six days for Selamat Omara. His 29 year-old son was on the missing plane.

"I am upset, very, very upset. I'm really hoping they will find this plane," says Selamat Omara whose son was on the missing plane, "My son's a normal, happy guy. He called and told me he's going to Beijing and less than 24–hours later it happened, the plane went missing."

There are several clues about where the plane may be. The "Wall Street Journal" reports that transponders on the Boeing Triple 777 were manually turned off 14–minutes apart.

Malaysian officials are dismissing another "Wall Street Journal" report. The report says satellites that report information from the plane's "onboard systems" were sending out signals for about 4 hours after the flight disappeared.

"Those reports are inaccurate. The last transmission of the aircraft was at 0107 which indicated everything was normal. This issue has never been raised," says Hishammuddin Bin Hussein.

A senior aviation source also says there is no technical data supporting the report. The "Wall Street Journal" stands by its story. According to its sources, this information would put the plane and all 239 people aboard somewhere around the Indian Ocean.

Navy officials say the USS Kidd is being redirected to the Indian Ocean to search for the missing plane. A former intelligence officer tells KMPH FOX 26 news partner "Fox News" that you don't take a destroyer out of the mix on a hunch and that there must some evidence to support the decision.
