I read the actual article, and there are two things very unsettling about the status of the cell phones, per the family members of those who are
1) the cell phones ring and DON'T go straight to voice mail. That is, according to the family members, unusual according to normal behavior of the
phones when "off" or "out of range".
2) the cell phones are logged in to a mobile instant messaging app, which indicates to the family members that the missing person's phone is within
some sort of data connection, either cellular data or wifi.
These two pieces of information, not so much #1 but definitely #2, indicate that there is a very strong chance that some or all of these people are or
were on land or somehow in a situation where their phones would be able to connect to a DATA service of some sort.
If they are "vaporized" or crashed or floating on a debris field or on the bottom of the ocean that would not be the case.
My guess is that the plane was hijacked, all transponders were turned off, the plane went to a very low altitude, changed course, and landed
somewhere. The passenger's belongings if not the passengers themselves were put indoors in some room somewhere and were within range of either
cellular data or wifi. Until the batteries died.
Definitely not a good situation for the people but at least it gives the family members some hope that they weren't killed in a fiery crash.
The obvious answer is for our NSA overseers to dig through their dragnet logs of the entire internet and find out where THOSE phones were on the dates
I agree, big brother could do some actual good here. Instead of eavesdropping on grandma's chicken soup recipe she texts to her daughter or watching
Jimmy Joe Billy Bob browse for cow milking equipment.
