The plane’s captain, Euan Mckay, was reported missing after taking off from Kuala Lumpur on Thursday night.
He and two other crew members are still missing, Malaysia Airlines said on Friday.
Flight 370, which disappeared on March 8 with 239 people onboard, is one of the most mysterious mysteries of aviation ever.
It was one of only two Boeing 777-200 aircraft that went missing in the history of aviation.
The other plane, MH370, was found almost 2,000 miles from the crash site.
The search for the missing aircraft resumed on Friday morning.
Malaysia’s Transportation Minister, Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, told reporters the search area is approximately 2,700 square kilometers (about 6,000 square miles).
Malaysian authorities said they believe MH370’s black box is still in the ocean.
Airlines have not been able to determine if the plane was shot down by an anti-aircraft gun or if it was hit by a missile.
A flight simulator at a Singapore airport showed a plane going through a series of maneuvers, according to Reuters.

Malay authorities said on Thursday they have found no evidence to support the theory that the plane had been deliberately shot down.
The United States has also been trying to find out what happened to the plane.
The FAA said on Saturday that it is continuing to assess the search.
