The search for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 ended for the day on Thursday with no success, despite ‘the best’ lead so far, according to CBS News. The search was being conducted in the southern Indian Ocean for possible objects from the plane.

There were four planes that took part in the search to find out if two massive objects spotted by satellite images in the ocean were actually debris from the plane.

The two objects measured 80 feet and 15 feet in length. John Young, the manager of the Australian Maritime Safety Authority’s emergency response division said that other objects could be in the area, which is located four hours from the southwestern coast of Australia.

“This is a lead, it’s probably the best lead we have right now,” Young said. Young did caution that the objects very well could be sea debris that fell off cargo ships along a shipping route.

An area encompassing 8,000 square miles was searched by four planes. A statement from the division said, “The search will continue on Friday.”

Malaysian Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein spoke at a news conference Thursday, saying that “for all the families around the world, the one piece of information that they want most is the information we just don’t have – the location of MH370.”

Young said that the depth of the ocean where the search occurred on Thursday is several thousand yards deep. Young said that spotting the objects could be difficult because they “are relatively indistinct on the imagery … but those who are experts indicate they are credible sightings. The indication to me is of objects that are a reasonable size and probably awash with water, moving up and down over the surface.”



There are analysts who said that the pieces found on satellite probably do not belong to the plane. “The chances of it being debris from the airplane are probably small, and the chances of it being debris from other shipping are probably large,” said Jason Middleton, an aviation professor at the University of New South Wales in Sydney.
