The guided-missile destroyer USS Kidd is being redeployed to the Strait of Malacca off Malaysia's west coast, amid reports the search for the missing jet could stretch into the vastness of the Indian Ocean. As the Kidd is sent to join a U.S. search plane west of the Malaysian peninsula — opposite the airliner's intended course — White House spokesman Jay Carney said officials have been given new information about an additional search area in the Indian Ocean that could be be opened.
