PETALING JAYA: A flight crew scouring the southern Indian Ocean for a missing Malaysia Airlines plane says they are getting radar hits of "significant size", indicating something lurking below the water's surface, ABC News reported.

ABC News' David Wright, on board the US Navy P-8 Poseidon, said the crew told him the radar indicated "there is something down there."

It is still too early to tell if the radar hits are related to the missing plane, which was carrying 239 people when it disappeared on March 8.

The P-8 is among four aircraft and one merchant ship heading to a region off the coast of Australia after two objects that may be related to the plane were spotted by satellite, officials said Thursday.
