People in Penang are puzzled by a mysterious plane crash which occurred there recently.
Just a few days ago three eye witnesses reported that they saw a plane crash in Pulau Keramat off Tanjung Bungah.
They were so convinced that they even reported the matter to the police.
After scouring the area however, nothing was found.
A mystery at hand
According to a report by The Star, George Town OCPD Asst Comm Soffian Santong said that a thorough search and rescue (SAR) was conducted in the area.
The SAR team included the police, the Fire and Rescue Department
, Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) and the marine police.
According to a follow up report by New Straits Times, the Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia (CAAM) also confirmed that all flights including private ones which flew on that day had been accounted for.
In a statement, CAAM also said that no Emergency Locater Transmitter (ELT) had been activated in the area.
ELTs are usually automatically activated upon impact.
Police have since spoken to 10 people and the three eyewitnesses.
