KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) - Australian officials say the hunt for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in a remote patch of the Indian Ocean is progressing well but is likely to take many months because of huge area involved.

An Australian search coordinator says there's optimism with two ships using high-tech sonar devices to search for the Boeing 777, which disappeared in March while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board.

He says weather is improving and they hope to cover as much area as possible.

Despite a massive air and sea search, not a single piece of debris from the plane has been found.
