(CNN) - An Australian company says it's found debris that could be from missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370. But, authorities are dismissing the claims because it's thousands of miles from the current search area.
As the underwater search off Australia enters a new phase, a private company is raising the possibility that Flight 370 may actually have crashed several thousand miles away in the Bay of Bengal. An Australian firm called Georesonance says it detected metals consistent with a large aircraft that could be from the missing plane.
The company launched its own search for the plane using technology originally created to find nuclear warheads and submarines.
