Officials 'puzzled' by Malaysia mystery as search widens
Search crews involving nine countries are working "every hour, every minute, every second" across a huge swathe of the South China Sea but have yet to find any evidence of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight, the country's civil aviation chief said on Monday.
Almost 60 hours after flight MH370 vanished from radar screens in the early hours of Saturday officials remain "puzzled" by its sudden disappearance and are considering all possible angles, Azharuddin Abdul Rahman said.
"Unfortunately, we have not found anything that appears to be an object from the aircraft, let alone the aircraft," he said.
The Beijing-bound flight was carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew when it went missing around 40 minutes after its 12.41am take-off from Kuala Lumpur, over the seas between Malaysia and Vietnam. The Boeing-777 was cruising at 35,000 feet when it disappeared in apparently good weather, gave no indication of any problems and did not issue a distress call.
Rahman added: "There are many theories that have been said in the media; many experts around the world have contributed their expertise and knowledge about what could happen, what happened....We are puzzled as well.
"To confirm what happened on that particular day on this ill-fated aircraft...we need concrete evidence, parts of the aircraft for us to analyse, for us to do forensic study."
He said that the government had not discounted speculation about a hijack, but was looking at every possible explanation, noting that it took two years to determine the cause of the 2009 Air France crash.

I wander why nobody has not mentioned maybe the aliens snatched up the plane, if it crashed into the ocean why isn't the black box sending back signals from under the ocean, it will send signals from 20,000 feet under the ocean, & what about debris, nothing found, the only other thing maybe hijacked & taken to a rogue country. & another thing aliens are already on are planet. Wake Up.
