The Jacksonville Naval Air Station P-8A Poseidons that have been taking part in efforts to find missing Malaysian Airline Flight 370 have been pulled off the search.

Despite a recent claim by a private company that it has located possible wreckage on the sea floor, not one piece of the missing plane has been found.

“We had two planes with two crews searching,” said Jacksonville Naval Air Station spokesperson Miriam Gallet. “They’re now headed back to Kadena, Japan to complete their deployment cycle.”

The Navy’s cutting-edge reconnaissance planes had been involved in the search since March.

The squadron is due home in July.
