- The Search Continues March 9
Investigators hunting for the Malaysian Airlines flight that went missing en route to Beijing have yet to find sign of the plane, but the Malaysian government announced a new wrinkle to the search late Saturday: four passengers may have flown with false documents, raising the possibility of terrorism.
Two passengers listed on the plane's manifest, an Italian and an Austrian, had their passports stolen in Thailand. And authorities were looking into the identities of two other passengers for as yet unspecified reasons, according to the Associated Press.
