Debris spotted off Indonesia coast, possible link to AirAsia

SURABAYA, Indonesia (AP) – An Indonesia National Search and Rescue spokesman says several pieces of debris have been spotted floating in the sea off Borneo island, possibly linked to the missing AirAsia jetliner.

Yusuf Latif says an Indonesian military aircraft saw white, red and black objects, including what appears to be a life jacket, off the coast, about 105 miles south of Pangkalan Bun.

The agency has dispatched at least one helicopter to pick up the items for investigation, which will be taken to the search and rescue coordination post on Belitung Island.
