The missing flight has remained a mystery that Tomnod can hopefully help solve. While officials don’t know why the plane went missing or where it is, they have figured out a few things. Officials have learned that two passengers on the plane used stolen passports, there was no bad weather at the time of the plane’s disappearance and five people who were scheduled to board the plane never did.
