SYDNEY - Missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 was "highly, highly likely" on autopilot when it ran out of fuel and crashed, Australian officials said Thursday as they announced the search will shift further south.

"It would be fair to comment that it is highly, highly likely that the aircraft was on autopilot, otherwise it could not have followed the orderly path that has been identified through the satellite sightings," Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss said.
