    More than two months after the Lion Air jet fell into the Java Sea, killing all 189 people on board, the cockpit voice recorder has been found, an Indonesian official said on Monday, Reuters reported.

    "It's been found, but we have not received information of the location yet," Haryo Satmiko, deputy chief of Indonesia's transport safety committee (KNKT), said by text message, according to Reuters.

    The found cockpit voice recorder is one of the two so-called black boxes, which are crucial for the investigation of the Boeing crash. The probe into the crash causes is underway.
