GeoResonance, a private company that has been helping in the search for the missing flight, believes it has found debris from the flight in the Bay of Bengal, thousands of miles from the current search area. GeoResonance said it had passed on the information to Malaysian Airlines and the Malaysian and Chinese embassies in Australia on March 31, and to the Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) on April 4. However, their claims were dismissed by JACC, which believes the debris is in the wrong area to be that from Flight MH370. In a statement, GeoResonance said:
The company is not declaring this is MH370, however it should be investigated. The company and its directors are surprised by the lack of response from the various authorities. This may be due to a lack of understanding of the company’s technological capabilities, or the JACC is extremely busy, or the belief that the current search in the Southern Indian Ocean is the only plausible location of the wreckage.
