Alert for debris from Missing Malaysian Plane MH370

Family members from one of the person who went missing on the Malaysian plane MH370 that went missing in March 2014 have requested the South African fisheries networks to please consider putting out a public alert to request persons to be on the look out for possible debris from the plane.  The experts working on this matter have stated “there have been four finds of floating debris items that have either been confirmed or are considered highly-likely to be from MH370 (i.e. the Boeing 7772H6ER aircraft registered as 9M-MRO), as listed in the table below. It may be anticipated that more discoveries of fragments of the aircraft will be made in coming months, spread over the shores of the western Indian Ocean and eventually elsewhere.”

Alert: Request to all  researchers, fishing and coastal communities and other users and visitors along the South African coastline.   Experts working on the debris confirmed to be from the missing Malaysian aeroplane flight MH370 which went missing on 8 March 2014 have stated that there have been four finds of floating debris items that have either been confirmed or are considered highly-likely to be from MH370 (i.e. the Boeing 7772H6ER aircraft registered as 9M-MRO), found in Mauritius, Mozambique and Mossel Bay, South Africa. It may be anticipated that more discoveries of fragments of the aircraft will be made in coming months, spread over the shores of the western Indian Ocean and eventually elsewhere.

The family of Chandrika Sharma, the Director of the International Collective in Support of Fishworkers (ICSF), requests that fishers and others using these coastlines please be on the lookout for possible debris.  Should you find anything that might be debris from this missing plane you are requested to please take a photograph of this if possible and to alert the nearest police station or other maritime authority as a matter of urgency.  The support of the marine science communities and the broader public in the efforts to find debris from this plane will be greatly appreciated.  Please see this link for further discussion on this issue
