William Marks of the U.S. 7th Fleet, which is helping in the search, told CNN, describing the situation. “We went from a chess board to a football field.” USS Kidd, a destroyer from the U.S. Pacific Fleet, is being moved into the Indian Ocean to begin searching that area at the request of the Malaysian government, Marks said. Malaysian officials, who are coordinating the search, said Friday that the hunt for the plane was spreading deeper into both the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea.
