Debris has been found by satellite.
Search crews are scouring the southern Indian Ocean today after two objects that may be related to the missing Malaysia Airlines flight were spotted by satellite, officials said Thursday.Officials described the sighting as the best lead at this stage in the investigation – saying four aircraft and one merchant ship are heading to the region off the coast of Australia.A US Navy P-8 Poseidon is involved with the search, occurring about 1,500 miles off of Australia's coast. ABC News' David Wright was the only TV reporter on board the flight.Crew members told ABC News that they received radar hits of "significant size," indicating something lurking below the water's surface -- but Commander William Marks, spokesman for the US Navy's 7th Fleet, later said the radar return was typical, and not connected to the missing plane.
