IMO the plane is in the sea. It was a terrorist act. The authorities know it, but they don't want to call it yet publicly while they are racing to catch up with whoever was behind this.
That makes no sense to me, if that was the case they wouldn't have started talking about terrorist attacks, or confirming a crash right from the beginning, they would have just said "still missing, might have crashed here" well just following standard procedure.

im guessing bud, and if it was just they engine im pretty sure they can fly with one engine, but if it blew the engine and the wing i thought that thats the way it would have fell.

Plane has been found now if one is to believe the many news reports coming in from the world.
Egyptian military is now searching for the wreckage, i believe they found only evidence of it (personal affects etc) and not the actual plane.
But they most likely will find it very soon. Black box recordings will be very interesting.

if the pilots had their throats slashed by a pair of Jihadi hijackers...
I imagine the sharp turns would be the result of slumping, dead bodies no longer operating the controls
Egypt Air Crash: 'Religion of Peace' Strikes Again?
“The French newspaper Le Figaro quotes a French border police source as saying that investigators will be focusing their attention on ground crew at Charles de Gaulles airport, to establish whether any airport employees posed a security risk,” reports BBC News. “The source said that, in the past, a number of Salafists – ultraconservative Muslims – had been detected among those with access to the areas used for the loading and unloading of aircraft.”
Body part, seats and items of luggage found - Greek defence minister
A body part, seats and one or more items of luggage have been found by crews searching for the wreckage of EgyptAir Flight MS804, Greece's defence minister has confirmed.
"A few hours earlier we were informed (by Egyptian authorities) that a body part, two seats and one or more items of luggage where found in the search area," Panos Kammenos told a news conference.
Mr Kammenos said the items were found in the search area slightly to the south of where the aircraft had vanished from radar, and slightly north of some earlier, unconfirmed debris sightings.
He said the aircraft had not deviated from its planned flight path through Greek airspace.
