Overnight, the Wall Street Journal released a report saying Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 may have traveled an additional four hours after falling off radar.
Thursday morning, Malaysian Acting Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein addressed the media and said the report is untrue.
Hishammuddin also disputed reports that the homes of the Boeing 777's flight crew were searched in connection to the disappearance.
He also said images from a Chinese satellite, which showed possible debris, were never supposed to be released and are not to be connected with the flight.
The search continues to intensify, with more than 80 ships and twelve nations on the hunt.
Officials coordinating the search are battling misinformation and somewhat chaotic cooperation between the twelve nations searching for the plane.
The search site for the missing Malaysian airliner is now growing after bombshell news from U.S. investigators.
A report in the Wall Street Journal sites U.S. officials who say the plane may have flown another four hours after dropping off radar screens.
One official likened the search area to finding a single car in the entire continental U.S.
The situation remains fluid as investigators continue to look at many different scenarios which include one where a passenger or the pilot may have turned off the plane's transponders and flew the plane carrying 237 passengers to an alternate location.
Also developing overnight, you can strike out one theory. Officials now say the images of debris captured by a Chinese satellite are not linked to missing flight MH370. One former NTSB official explains why he never had a lot of faith in those images.
"It doesn't look like the wreckage. Just by the size," said Former NTSB director Tom Hauter. "Any aircraft structure that size will sink. Seventy by seventy feet, Seventy by forty feet is too big. It would sink. It wouldn't float like this."
Officials say the additional four hours of flight time after dropping off radar screens means the Boeing 777 could have continued for an additional distance of about 2,200 nautical miles.
