Private company: missing plane wreckage by Bay of Bengal

Posted: Updated:
AUSTRALIA (WKOW) -- A private company says it has found what could be the wreckage of missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370; however, search leaders are dismissing the claim.

The CEO of GeoResonance says the possible debris was found in the Bay of Bengal, which is several thousand miles away from the official search site.  The company says the metals appeared in the bay around the time of the disappearance.  They did not want to say that it was definitely metal from the missing plane, but they say the detected metals are consistent with a large aircraft.

Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 disappeared on March 8th.  Active search efforts have been going during those six weeks.  The official search team says it's satisfied that the jet went down in the southern Indian Ocean based on satellite and other data.

The Australian Prime Minister has said the chance of finding debris is now slim to none.
