The search continued on Sunday for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

The Vietnemese Navy spotted debris in the Gulf of Thailand. Although the object could not be identified, this could be the first clue to emerge in the search.

The Boeing 777 was heading to beijing from kuala lumpur when ground controllers lost any sign of it early saturday.

Malaysian authorities say radar indicates the plane may have turned around.

239 people were on the plane including four Americans--three adults and an infant. If confirmed dead, this will be the deadliest airline disaster in 13 years.
