    This handout image from the Australia Transportation Safety Bureau shows the conditions of the southern Indian Ocean where crews searched for the Malaysia Airlines jet that went down in 2014.

    One of the three ships searching the depths of the Indian Ocean for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 will end its mission Thursday, authorities said.

    The Fugro Discovery will leave the remote search zone ahead of the anticipated suspension of efforts to locate the wreckage of the missing Boeing 777.

    The Joint Agency Co-ordination Centre (JACC) said in an operational update Wednesday that the contracted vessel will "transit to Singapore to be readied for its next project, unrelated to the search for MH370."

    It leaves Fugro Equator and Dong Hai Jiu 101 to search the remainder of the 46,000 square mile zone that experts say is the most likely place where the plane crashed in 2014.
