Prime Minister Najib Razak made the announcement and stated the conclusion that the jet went into the ocean was garnished from a study of the jet's last-known signals to a satellite.

"Based on a type of analysis never before used in an investigation of this sort it has been concluded that Flight MH370 flew along the southern corridor and the last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean west of Perth. This is a remote location. Far from any possible landing sites, it is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that according to this new data, Flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean," said Razak during a press conference.

Although the location of Flight 370 has now been officially announced it does not answer why the plane went off course and ended up in that area, let alone why it went down.

The black box has yet been recovered and likely will never happen as the plane could be as deep as 23,000 feet, but the signal it is emitting could help searchers still help locate the plane. It is predicted there is about two weeks of battery life left in the black box and the "ping" could help narrow down where the plane went into the ocean.
