AUGUSTA, Australia, April 23 (UPI) -- Officials have discovered an "object of interest" during their search for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane off of the western coast of Australia. The object, described as appearing to be sheet metal with rivets, was found near Augusta.
"It's sufficiently interesting for us to take a look at the photographs," Australian Transport Safety Bureau Chief Commissioner Martin Dolan told CNN. "We take all leads seriously. The more we look at it, the less excited we get."
