The search for doomed Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 may have been conducted in the wrong part of the ocean all along, according to some engineering experts, Reuters reported Thursday.

Engineering firm Fugro, a Dutch company leading the underwater search, said plane may have glided down rather than dived in the final moments, meaning they have been searching the wrong area for two years, Reuters reported.

The company’s “controlled-glide” theory is the first time officials have given any credence to the idea that someone was in control of the flight in its final moments, though investigating agencies, including the United States National Transportation Safety Board, have not supported the theory, Reuters reported.

Since it disappeared in March 2014, Flight 370’s fate has often been the subject of intense cable-news attention and speculation, with one CNN anchor even infamously positing a “supernatural” occurrence doomed the flight.
