What a scary time.
AirAsia flight QZ8501 was headed from Surabaya, Indonesia to Singapore on Sunday, but has since gone missing 40 minutes after it took off. The last contact that they had with the aircraft was off the coast of Borneo, though the reported times of the last contact are not consistent. One official said 6:17am Jakarta time was the last contact, while Singapore authorities said it was 6:24am.
The search for the plane was suspended once night fell in the region, due to stormy conditions, and it's expected to pick back up on Monday morning.
In the search, Indonesia sent three warships, maybe more, and five planes, while Malaysia sent three boats and three planes, Singapore sent a C-130 plane, and Australia extended an offer to also send boats and planes as well. The search is taking place

LiLo photo shoot alert!
And it's not just Instagram selfies!
Lindsay Lohan has been happily posting some naughty pics of herself on social media lately, but it looks like her latest endeavor will totally end up in print!
The 27-year-old actress used her Sunday down time to share another snap of herself getting prepped for an Elle Indonesia photo shoot, while hiding her eyes behind a pair of dark aviators.
Loving that side braid and burgundy pout, Linds!
While we wait for the spread (and hopefully cover), check out a second sneak peek of the shoot in the gallery (below)!

Ashley Greene was clearly feeling the island vibes at the Oakley Pro in Bali on Tuesday night.
The Twilight actress kept things easy and breezy in a canary yellow sheath dress and flat nude sandals that showed off her tat.
To top it all off, Ashley incorporated a daisy headband into her pretty braided brunette tresses.
It's not as fun a getting lei'd, but it's better than nothing, right? Ha!

Vanessa Hudgens may have halfway across the world, but she was looking as bohemian as ever in her paisley print Blu Moon jumper Tuesday night at the Oakley Pro in Bali.
A wooden necklace and matching wedge heels added an island feel as did her fresh off the surfboard 'do and glowing tan.
We could complain about her hair, but we're just glad to see all those extensions are gone!
She must feel 10 pounds lighter!
