Wreckage found at the bottom of the Java Sea Wreckage found at the bottom of the Java Sea
BANJARNEGARA, Indonesia - The wreckage of AirAsia Flight QZ8501 has been located at the bottom of the Java Sea, according to an Indonesian official. The wreckage was found off the coast of Borneo, about 40 miles away from the plane's last known location.

Search teams are looking for other bodies and parts of the plane, including its so-called black boxes. Those could help investigators determine what went wrong on the flight, which lost contact with air traffic controllers on Sunday.

Early indications suggest the flight met a sudden end as the crew tried to negotiate around violent thunder storm cells in their path.

Among the 162 passengers and crew aboard the flight there were 17 children and 1 infant. On Tuesday searchers found six bodies, three men and three women. One of the females found was wearing a flight attendant's uniform

The pilot was Captain Iriyanto, a man with more than 20,000 hours in the cockpit. His daughter took to social media during the search, pleading with her dad to come home: "Papa, come back, I still need you. Return my papa to me. Papa, come back, pa. Papa needs to be found, papa must return."
