Missing jet may have been on autopilot

  • Authorities can't be sure as to whether or not Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 will be found. However, it appears that they may start looking for it at a new place. A recent report suggests that a new area in the Indian Ocean will now be searched and Australian Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss said it's "highly, highly likely that the aircraft was on autopilot."

    The Telegraph notes that the new search will start in August. "This area has never been comprehensively mapped," Truss said, adding that they don't know when the plane was set to autopilot, but it was likely turned on "somewhere off the western tip of Sumatra."
