Officials: Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 on autopilot when it crashed

There are new developments in the hunt for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

Officials have finally released key information about what happened the night that Boeing 777 vanished.

They say the jet was likely on autopilot for at least five hours, while the crew may have been unconscious, possibly from a lack of oxygen.

They also suggest the plane eventually ran out of fuel before spiraling into the ocean.

These new details have led authorities to a massive new search area. It's farther south and much larger than the previous search zone.

It's about 23,000 square miles, roughly the size of West Virginia.
