The Australian navy ship Ocean Shield left the western port city of Perth on Saturday to resume the underwater search for a missing Malaysia Airlines jet that disappeared on March 8 during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

The ship is carrying a U.S. Navy robot submersible, which has been scanning large areas in a remote part of the Indian Ocean, where the plane is believed to have gone down.

The aerial search for flight MH370 was called off late last month after a failure to find any floating debris

The Malaysian government believes someone with aviation knowledge intentionally diverted the plane, but an investigation has turned up no solid leads.
