Yeah , by like 1,700 miles less than before. They say it might be possible to find something as it was before impossible. I still think this was Obama acting in part with the MARS aliens that we uncovered back in the 1970's and they decided they need to experiment on real humans for the next cycle of evolution. The plane the Mars aliens will keep in a museum next to the A.L.F. doll they have on display and Jimmy Hoffa. Sometime in the next 50 or so years we will all hear about these aliens that have made contact from MARS and they will actually look like modern day humans because the aliens will of used the skin from the passengers on Flight 370 as a sheath in a sense. This sheath will allow the MARS people to walk and talk and act like modern day humans but will provide no actual protection from our Sun which will contain too much mercury for the MARS people. So slowly they will die off unless they find the red laced shoes from JC Penny's that are on sale for $34.98 before tax and if they find the nearest Dave and Busters to disassemble the CLAW machine to hopefully find the ONE that does not eat your money and will give you the huggable ELMO doll we all secretly asked Santa for back in 1975.So, in closing, I would like to add a good luck on finding anything but some dead fish and animals and a whole lot of fart smelling air that was blown out of some shmucks ass in Washington DC to the general population of this once proud country called The United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one MARS alien, under Sun, indivisible, with hippocracy and intolerance for all!!! Thank you.

It saddens me to see people jump to a conclusion that the parents must be unfit. Those children could have been with a sitter or at a friends house and the parents were unaware. Yes it might be they did not keep track of the children but non of that has been reported. So do jump to conclusions without more information a family lost a child.
