While officials keep searching for the plane in the southern Indian Ocean, an Australian company says it has discovered what it believes to be the wreckage of a commercial aircraft several thousand kilometers away in the Bay of Bengal.
“The company is not declaring this is MH370, however it should be investigated,” GeoResonance said in a statement.
GeoResonance said it analyzes super-weak electromagnetic fields captured by airborne multispectral images.
Malaysian acting Transportation Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said Malaysia “is working with its international partners to assess the credibility of this information.”
But the Joint Agency Coordination Centre, which is coordinating the multinational search, dismissed the claim.
“The Australian-led search is relying on information from satellite and other data to determine the missing aircraft’s location,” the JACC said.
“The location specified by the GeoResonance report is not within the search arc derived from this data. The joint international team is satisfied that the final resting place of the missing aircraft is in the southerly portion of the search arc.”
