No sightings of missing MAS flight : DCA chief

The search and rescue mission to locate the missing Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flight MH370 has yet to produce any findings as at 7am Sunday.

The operation was carried out through the night and will continue, said Department of Civil Aviation director-general Datuk Azharuddin Abdul Rahman (pic) on Sunday.

Several media outlets have also reported the finding of oil slicks at sea, suggesting that the plane may have crashed into the South China Sea, but Azharuddin stressed that the reports remain unverified.

"So far, we have not located anything at the areas in the South China Sea where the aircraft was reported missing.

"We now have three aircraft combing the site (where MH370 allegedly went missing) but there have not been reports of any sightings," Azharuddin said in a press conference at a hotel located adjacent to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, here.
