MH370: Time to Give up Search? Authorities Look in the Wrong Places - New Report

After a month had passed, there are still no definitive clues that can identify the fate of the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370.
Authorities are currently on a search mission in the Bay of Bengal after alleged debris of the plane's wreckage were spotted by an Australian exploration company. The Christian Science Monitor is unconvinced that the officials are looking in the right places. The Web site does not question that GeoResonance found a wreckage of an aircraft.

But what critics are concerned about is whether the wreckage found was the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370. The area where the alleged wreckage was reportedly seen is situated about 3,000 miles away from the area where the current search mission is being piloted.
Also, the Web site is questioning that the tool used by GeoResonance to look for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 is an equipment commonly used to hunt for mineral deposits.
According to Fox News, the same technology that GeoResonance uses to hunt for mineral deposits was used to search the ocean floor for traces of chemical elements that make a Boeing 777 aircraft. Such elements include titanium, aluminum and most importantly, jet fuel residues.
The exploration company revealed it was not certain if the debris sighted were the missing jetliner but wanted an investigation to be carried out to get an accurate report.
The Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) did not entertain the idea that the missing Malaysian aircraft ended up in the Bay of Bengal.
"The location specified by the GeoResonance report is not within the search arc derived from this data," JACC said in a statement referring to the information that the Australian search team has acquired from the satellite.
"The joint international team is satisfied that the final resting place of the missing aircraft is in the southerly portion of the search arc."
Malaysia Will Not Give Up
Earlier in April, Malaysia said it will not give up searching for the missing Malaysian aircarft, as Yahoo reported. Malaysia's Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein revealed they will continue looking for clues to solve one of the biggest mysteries in the aviation history in recent years, regardless of how much the cost is.
"I can only speak for Malaysia, and Malaysia will not stop looking for MH370," Hishammuddin said.
Search Cost: Most Expensive in Aviation History
The cost involved in the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 continues to rise. It is now the most expensive in the history of aviation, The Globe and Mail reported.
The U.S. seems to be slowly stepping away, which means Australia, China and Malaysia will likely be burdened by the rising search costs. Prime Minister Tony Abott recently revealed the search will likely go on for another 8 months the most.
