Missing Malaysian airliner update

Posted: Updated:

There are more questions than answers nearly a month after Malaysia airlines flight 370 vanished.

 Now, a senior Malaysian government official tells media outlets the plane may have purposely flown a route designed to avoid radar detection.

The official says investigators believe the plane may have flown north of Indonesia and around the country's airspace in its journey to the southern Indian ocean.

The official says investigators reached the conclusion after reviewing radar track data from neighboring countries.

 Flight 370 disappeared on March 8th with 239 people on board.


China's Xinhua News Agency says a Chinese ship searching for the missing Malaysian airliner has detected a `pulse' signal.

Malaysia's defense minister says that nearly a month after Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared, the search for the missing plane will continue "with the same level of vigor and intensity."


Hishammuddin Hussein said Saturday, "We will continue to focus, with all our efforts, on finding the aircraft."

   He said there are no more new satellite images or data that can provide new leads, and the focus now is fully on the ocean search

   Search teams trying to find the flight recorders from the missing jet crisscrossed another patch of the Indian Ocean on Saturday, four weeks after the airliner vanished.

   A multinational team is desperately trying to find debris floating in the water or faint sound signals from the recorders that could lead them to the aircraft.
