KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia's Maritime Enforcement Agency was intensifying its search operations off the Kelantan coast, where the missing Malaysia Airlines plane was last spotted, after rescuers found a small canvas floating there.

The Agency's director-general Datuk Amdan Kurish said the rescuers who found the piece during their search, initially thought it was a life jacket.

But now they were trying to ascertain if it could have come from the missing plane, according to a report by the New Straits Times.

"Tomorrow, we will give more focus on the areas nearby the location where we found the canvas," he was quoted as saying on Saturday.
