Analyst: New plane lead should be investigated for Flight 370 passengers' families

(CNN) – An Australian land and sea surveying company, GeoResonance, says they believe they have found wreckage that could belong to Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

But it is about a 100 miles from Bangladesh, and nowhere near where the Australian-led search team is looking for the missing plane. Ignoring the plane's initial northern arc could have been a mistake, says company spokesman David Pope.

"The southern area doesn't seem logical to us at all. The pings coming from the satellite is basically a 50/50 chance that it was hitting on the northern corridor or the southern corridor," Pope told CNN's New Day. "We're not saying we have actually found MH370. We have found what we think is a lead that should be investigated."

Could this be a legitimate lead? CNN safety analyst and author of "Why Planes Crash" David Soucie, and sea operations specialist Tim Taylor discuss.
