Vietnamese air force planes have spotted two large oil slicks that authorities suspect are from a Malaysian jetliner that went missing early Saturday.

A Vietnamese government statement says the slicks were spotted off the southern tip of Vietnam. The slicks were each between 10 kilometres and 15 kilometres long.

The statement said the slicks were consistent with the kinds that would be left by fuel from a crashed jetliner.

The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 disappeared from radar screens with 239 people - including two Canadians - on board en route to Beijing.

The airline has released the names of the passengers. The two Canadians are listed as 37-year-old Bai Xiaomo and 42-year-old Muktesh Mukherjee.
