CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA (Seven Network/CNN) - The search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is moving to an area farther south in the southern Indian Ocean.

Flight 370 disappeared over Southeast Asia on March 8.

Searchers have so far found no trace of the Boeing 777 or the 239 people aboard, making it one of the biggest mysteries in aviation history.

Australia's Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss held a briefing on the search on Thursday.

"The new priority area is still focused on the same seventh arc in the southern Indian Ocean where the aircraft last communicated with satellite," Truss said. "We are now shifting our attention to an area further south along that arc, broadly along the area where our first efforts were focused. The area has already been subject to aerial and visual searching for wreckage and debris. But now we will move to an underwater search."

He also said it was "highly, highly likely" that the plane was on autopilot when it flew into the southern Indian Ocean.
