Maximum Area Problem in a Triangle - Not Solved Yet

The following extremum problem in a triangle has not been solved. It looks simple, and intuitively "**P = mid point of BC**" seems to be the answer, but noone was able to prove it yet. The closest solution brings a set of 4 equations which was not able to be solved neither by WolframAlpha nor by Maple.

Thanks.
