(Undated) -- The search for a missing Malaysian airliner is focusing on a new area of the Indian Ocean on the strength of what's being called a "new credible lead." The change was made based on radar data that suggest the jet was traveling faster than previously estimated, used up more fuel and shortened the distance the plane traveled. The new search area is more accessible, but is still in a section of the Indian Ocean considered extremely dangerous. Malaysia's prime minister has already announced that the jet, in all likelihood, went down in the southern Indian Ocean, killing all 239 people on board.
