French Plane Vanishes over Atlantic Ocean

I am posting this news story because it's so weird that not even the experts have the answers. This classifies as a strange phenomenon.

An Air France plane carrying 228 people from Brazil to France has vanished over the Atlantic after flying into turbulence, airline officials say.

The Airbus sent an automatic message at 0214 GMT, four hours after leaving Rio de Janeiro, reporting a short circuit. It may have been damaged by lightning.

It was well over the ocean when it was lost, making Brazilian and French search planes' task more difficult.

France's president said the chances of finding survivors were "very small".

A French plane bound for France disappeared over the Atlantic Ocean! No traces of the plane can be found. Why is this weird? Because if this plane had crashed, the rescue crews would have found plane debris and bodies floating across the water. It just vanished without a trace! No radar can pick up the plane's signal.

Do you think the crew and the passengers will be found? Or something more mysterious (perhaps supernatural?) has taken place here?

[UPDATE #1: June 3, 2009]: Wreckage from the missing Air France plane has been finally found. Efforts to retrieve the black box and debris will prove exceedingly challenging because the ocean floor is nearly 3-4 miles deep. This is a very tragic ending for the people on board that flight. No one will clearly know what happened.
