KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (CNN) - The crew of the Navy's USS KIDD is searching the Indian Ocean for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

According to a Defense Department release, the KIDD is replacing the USS Pinckney, which had to go to Singapore for scheduled maintenance.

The KIDD will search the waters of the Andaman Sea, the Bay of Bengal and the northern portion of the Indian Ocean.

Flight 370 disappeared more than a week ago with more than 200 people on board.

26 nations are working to find the missing plane.
