Missing Malaysian plane search enters new phase

Published:Monday | April 28, 2014 | 8:14 AM

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott says the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines plane will be entering a new phase, as days of searching by air, on the water surface or under the sea, have found no wreckage.



The Prime Minister said, the new phase will focus on searching the ocean floor over a much larger area as it is highly unlikely that any debris will be found on the ocean surface.



He also said the new phase will use commercial contractors with a high degree of specialisation with deep ocean search and will cost about $60 million.
