Authorities believe they have found wreckage connected with the missing AirAsia jetliner, after debris and the bodies were spotted in the Java Sea.
Bambang Soelistyo, the head of Indonesia's National Search and Rescue Agency, said a shadow in the shape of a plane has been spotted in the water. Debris found in the water appears to include an emergency exit door.
Search and dive crews are being sent to the area, Soelistyo said.

Tuesday's search included 12 helicopter units, 11 fixed-wing units, and 32 ship units with assistance from neighboring countries Singapore, Malaysia and Australia.
Flight QZ8501, an Airbus A320-200, lost contact with air traffic control over the Java Sea during a flight to Singapore Sunday morning, shortly after the pilots requested a change of flight plan because of weather.
The flight had at least 162 people on board.
