>> An uncontrolled dive into the Indian Ocean. Australian Investigators on Wednesday saying it looks like their theory on what happened to doomed flight MH370 was right. After looking at satellite communications and debris from the plane, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau says it appears nobody was at the controls when the plane vanished in 2014, and that it likely ran out of fuel and fell into the Indian Ocean.

They point to a wing flap from the aircraft which was set in a cruising position when it was discovered, not extended and ready to land. The new conclusions debunk a theory that's been floating around called controlled descent, which speculated that somebody had guided the plane down beyond the search zone in the Indian Ocean.

Investigators say they're now confident their search is on the right track.>> The information provided to us is that we are searching in the right area, but it is an extremely difficult and complex search. It's tested the limits of human engineering excellence and technical capacity. It has been a historic effort.

To have not found the aircraft in this stage is frustrating for everyone involved, particularly for the families of the passenger and crew.>> Bad weather has slowed the search down. It was supposed to wrap up by the end of the year but that will now be pushed back by two months.
