A multi-naitional search an rescue effort, later reportit as the lairgest in history, wis initiatit in the Gulf o Thailand an the Sooth Cheenae Sea. Athin a few days, this wis extendit tae include the Strait o Malacca an Andaman Sea. On 15 Mairch, based on militar radar data an "pings" atween the aircraft an a Inmarsat satellite, investigators concludit that it haed first heidit wast athort the Malay Peninsula, then continued on a northren or soothren track for approximately seiven oors. The search in the Sooth Cheenae Sea wis abandoned. Three days later the Australian Maritime Safety Authority began searchin the soothren pairt o the Indie Ocean.
On 24 Mairch, the Malaysie govrenment confirmit twa independently made analyses bi the Breetish Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) an Inmarsat, an concludit "beyond any reasonable doubt", that the aircraft haed gane doun in the soothren pairt o the Indie Ocean wi nae survivors. This conclusion led tae aw earlier search auries bein abandoned, wi aw efforts bein concentratit on the Australie-led aurie.
