I only read the story of the missing airliner, Flight 370, on CNN a few minutes ago. My suspicious detective mind made me wonder if it could be hijacked? But usually by now, hijackers start making demands. I read there were some fake passports which makes me wonder if they simply hitched a ride somewhere? Certainly, they weren’t that far out from land. It’s interesting that there is no beacon or signal from the jet either. If you have some good links to read, send me a note. - By the way, our prayers go out to all - We have family there and they fly those skys…
Someone sent me this story from the Daily Beast. The water is somewhat shallow, and I would expect parts to surely be floating by now. The currents are probably strong and generally stay in the same directions. In a story soon to be published, Pete and I test the currents with 3 small sail boats, testing to see where our victims (sorry) should have come ashore. Our theory being, they could have never come ashore on the small Islets they did.

Comments about The Next Act
Another reviewer says, “unique cases that you normally don’t’ hear about.” We heard Charlie on the piano as Pete and I walked into the swanky Harbor Port Inn. The manager installed a 2-story money chute to deal with the missing large bills, dropped every half hour down to a small money counting room in the sub-basement. Pete was only 11 YO, but went up to the top of the chute to watch the drop. One afternoon, he came scurrying down, blurting out, “Dad, Dad, I just saw thing!” I said, “What thing.” He answered, “You know, the hand that comes out of the box on the Addams Family,” in the story, Play it Again, Charlie.
