Shipwreck found during search for missing Malaysia Airlines jet

For nearly two years, boats dragging high-tech detection devices across the Indian Ocean have failed to solve the mystery of the whereabouts of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

But in December one boat raked up a different one -- a shipwreck some 200 years old at the bottom of the sea.

Searchers sent out second boat to take a picture using the sonar on board an autonomous underwater vehicle. Imagery was shown to experts at the Shipwreck Galleries of the Western Australian Museum, who said the wreckage is probably a ship made of steel or iron from the early 19th century.
