The search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 continued over the weekend as search teams continue to comb the southeastern Indian Ocean for any sign of wreackage from the airliner.

Australian officials said on Monday that several pieces of debris spotted by search planes earlier in the week turned out to be "old fishing gear."

A multinational search effort, led by Australia, Malaysia, and the United States have deployed new resources to the search area, including submersibles and black box detectors.  

Experts have estimated that the black boxes onboard MH370 are within days of losing battery power.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said on Monday that his country would continue the search and that there was "no time limit" on the length of the effort to finding the missing airliner.
