Airplane-shaped anomaly detected on sea floor between March 5-10 in Bay of Bengal.

A private firm says they have strong evidence they have found the wreckage of a plane, possibly Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, but that despite their evidence, nobody is taking them seriously.

MH370 disappeared into the ocean, but nobody is really sure where.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - An Australian company is claiming to have found what is likely the wreckage of a commercial jetliner on the ocean floor in the Bay of Bengal, but that officials are not taking them seriously because their find is in the Bay of Bengal as opposed to the search area proposed by officials.

Malaysia Airlines flight 370 disappeared on March 8 and the tech firm GeoResonance says they detected the presence of what is likely a commercial airliner on the sea floor on March 10. A previous sweep of the area on March 5 revealed nothing.

Furthermore, the various metals in the plane's construction appear are showing up consistently in their scans which can separately detect aluminum, copper, alloys, and other metals as well as oil. The firm prospects for these resources which allows other companies to know where to harvest.

To accomplish their mission, GeoResonance uses underwater equipment to scan the sea floor. Between March 5 and March 10, their scans revealed the presence of aluminum, copper, hydrocarbons, and steel alloys. Furthermore, the distribution of these materials looks like a submerged airplane.

The company's director David Pope said his company shared their findings right away with investigators, but became dismayed after being ignored. He told CNN, "We're a large group of scientists, and we were being ignored, and we thought we had a moral obligation to get our findings to the authorities."

Officials from Australia's Joint Agency Coordination Centre, the agency that is managing the search effort, have dismissed the claims because they do not fit within the southern arc where data suggests the plane may have gone down. Also, the black-box sonar detections are far away from the Bay of Bengal.

However, despite a detailed undersea search for MH370 in the area suggested by pinger contacts, nothing has been found. There is data which suggests that flight MH370 continued flying for hours after it disappeared from radar and changed course. That evidence, once carefully analyzed, has caused investigators to conclude the plane flew south for an extended period of time before crashing in the India Ocean, likely out of fuel.

Yet the mystery abounds. Who had a motive to hijack the plane? Why was it deliberately taken off radar and course? Where was the plane flying? Was it crashed intentionally, or did it run out of fuel? Why would anyone fly the plane for so long if they simply wanted to die?

It is entirely possible that the plane crashed elsewhere in the Indian Ocean, even far away from the predicted search areas. If so, it may never be found.

Until someone follows up on the anomaly detected by GeoResonance, their find may prove to be the most tantalizing clue in a story that has captivated the world with many questions and very few answers.
