frustrating search for the Boeing 777.

The images were captured on March 9 which was the day after the plane went missing but weren released until Wednesday.
China State Administration for Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense announced the discovery, including images of what it said were "three suspected floating objects and their sizes." The objects aren small at 13 by 18 meters (43 by 59 feet), 14 by 19 meters and 24 by 22 meters.
New York Times quoted a spokesman for the Malaysian prime minister office as saying Tuesday that military officials had told him there was no evidence the plane had flown back over the Malay Peninsula to the Straits of Malacca.
An explanation appeared to come Tuesday when a senior Malaysian Air Force official told CNN that the Air Force had tracked the plane to a spot near the small island of Palau Perak off Malaysia west coast in the Straits of Malacca.
Earlier Wednesday, officials announced they had once again expanded the search area. It now covers nearly 27,000 square nautical miles, more than double the size of the area being searched just a day before.
However, it wasn clear whether that radar signal represented Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, Gen. Rodzali Daud, head of the Malaysian Air Force, said at the news conference.
"We have been very consistent in the search," he said.
The Prime Minister office didn immediately return calls from CNN seeking comment.
Malaysia civilian administration appeared to dispute the report, however.
Such a dramatic expansion at this stage of the investigation is troubling, said CNN aviation expert Richard Quest.

At a news conference Wednesday, Malaysian transportation minister Hishamuddin Bin Hussein defended his government approach.

Phan Quy Tieu, Vietnam vice minister of transportation, said the information Malaysian officials provided was "insufficient."
Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 vanished early Saturday with 239 people on board during a flight between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing.
"Up until now we only had one meeting with a Malaysian military attache," he said.
Rodzali said that officials are still "examining and analyzing all possibilities" when it comes to the plane flight path.
The Chinese agency gave coordinates of 105.63 east longitude, 6.7 north latitude, which would put it in waters northeast of where it took off in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and south of Vietnam. Still, it is the latest and comes on the same day that officials, rather than narrowing the search area, more than doubled it from Omega Seamaster 57 the day earlier to nearly 27,000 square nautical miles (35,000 square miles).
In the immediate aftermath of the plane disappearance, search and rescue efforts were focused on the Gulf of Thailand, along the expected flight path between Malaysia and Vietnam.
That location is hundreds of miles off the plane expected flight path.
