Things aren’t looking great for the missing Malaysia Airlines flight that disappeared after taking off for Beijing this past week.

Family, friends, and authorities are desperately seeking answers and though the news is disturbing, there are a lot of clues surfacing in regard to the plane’s journey.

According to the NY Times, there is suspicion that the flight was taken down by terrorists, since two of the passengers were discovered to have used stolen passports from Thailand. Reports say that the tickets that they used for the flight were purchased through a Chinese airline.

Authorities also discovered oil slicks in the Gulf of Thailand, which was close to the route of Flight MH370.

The outlet reports:

By early Sunday morning, there was little to go on: no wreckage of the jet, a Boeing 777-200 with 239 people aboard, and other than oil slicks on the surface of the Gulf of Thailand that may have been from a crash, no clue that an accident had even taken place. The airline said the plane, which departed from Kuala Lumpur, had recently passed inspection, and Malaysia’s deputy minister of transport, Aziz bin Kaprawi, said the authorities had not received any distress signals from the aircraft. The plane was flying at 35,000 feet with no reports of threatening weather when it last made contact.

There’s no evidence of any explosion, but there was an emergency signal 153 miles out to sea that was found with no one around the area.

If the passengers on the plane are found dead, it will be the deadliest commercial airline accident since November of 2001 when an American Airlines flight crashed on its way from JFK to the Dominican Republic.

We pray for the victims of this flight, as well as their friends and family during this time.
