"The next step for the deep-sea search will be carried out by private contracted companies. The China Maritime Search and Rescue Center and Australia’s Joint Agency Coordination Center will hold telephone conferences every week, and China will send more personnel to join the search," said Director of China Martime Search and Rescue Center Zhuo Li.

China has contributed 19 search ships, 8 helicopters and 5 fixed-wing aircraft in search for the missing Malaysian jet since it disappeared from the radar in March. International search efforts have centered around a suspected crash site in a remote part of the southern Indian Ocean, identified via vague satellite signals.

No trace of the plane has been found. The search area is now some 60,000 square kilometers. It’s based largely on an analysis of transmissions between the plane and a satellite. Searchers will use sonar, video cameras and jet fuel sensors to scour the seabed for any trace of the Boeing 777.
