UPDATE: Malaysian authorities confirm that the NO wreckage was actually found.
Malaysia’s Police Chief General Khalid Abu Bakar said Philippine authorities had investigated the claims made over the weekend that a plane with a Malaysian flag and human remains inside had been found on the island of Sugbay in the Tawi Tawi province were untrue.
“The Philippines has confirmed there is no plane wreckage,” the state-run Bernama news agency quoted General Khalid as saying in a text message.
Well, this would prove wrong almost all of the assumed theories on the path and potential whereabouts of MH370…
Malaysia authorities are acknowledging that they have received a report from the isolated Sugbay Island in the Philippines of airplane wreckage with the Malaysian flag as well as human remains. The wreckage was supposedly discovered by a teenager who was hunting in the jungle with friends. Her uncle reported the sighting which was relayed to Malaysian authorities.
The island is not in the flight’s projected path and is 4,800 miles from the flaperon discovery on Reunion Island. Drift modeling of a crash in the southern Indian Ocean puts Reunion Island in the debris field…but not Sugbay Island.
Malaysian authorities have supposedly asked for pictures from their counterparts in the Philippines.
