Authorities say the seabed search for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet is set to widen.

Authorities say the seabed search for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet is set to widen as a sonar scan of the most likely crash site deep beneath the Indian Ocean nears completion without yielding a single clue.

The Australian search coordination center said Friday that a robotic submarine had scanned 95 percent of a 310-square-kilometer (120-square-mile) search area since last week but had found nothing of interest.

The search area is a circle with a 10-kilometer (6-mile) radius 4.5 kilometers (2.8 miles) deep off the west Australian coast.

The center said the sub would begin searching outside the 10-kilometer radius if nothing was found of the plan that went missing March 8 with 239 people on board.
