Authorities have widened the search area for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 to include the Strait of Malacca. Even though the search has focused on the South China Sea between Malaysia and Vietnam, the site of the last known contact with the plane, Malaysia is also including the Strait, which is on the opposite side of the focus area. Malaysia’s Prime Minister, Najib Razak, said Saturday that the country would search for “as long as it takes.” The Boeing 777 left Kuala Lumpur on March 8, 2014 carrying 239 people and has been the subject of an intense search and much speculation ever since its mysterious disappearance. This is the latest in an ever-growing list of strange and concerning discoveries linked to the story, include two passengers, one from Italy and one from Austria. While both were listed on the flight, they were never actually on board, both having had their passports stolen in Thailand. Aviation consultant Johnathan Galaviz also noted that it was “absolutely rare” that the plane lost contact during the usually safe ‘cruise’ portion of the flight. The latest information any country could offer was a report from Vietnam: two oil slicks and some random debris had been spotted of that country’s coast, perhaps indicating the plane had crashed there. We wish the authorities the best of luck in finding the plane, its crew, and its passengers.
