Australia: MH370 may have turned south earlier than previously thought

(CNN) - There is new information on the fate of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 -- and where the lost plane might be now.

Authorities say the plane may have turned south earlier than previously thought. That's based on new analysis of data from a failed satellite phone call to the plane, made by ground staff after they lost radio contact. In a Thursday morning news conference, Australia's Deputy Prime Minister said the search area remains focused in the southern Indian Ocean.

For months, investigators have been pouring over satellite and radar data -- to try and determine the doomed plane's flight path. Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 vanished on March 8th, during a trip from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Since then, searchers have found no trace of the aircraft or anyone on board.
