Missing since it disappeared from the skies on March 8, the search continues for Malaysian Airlines flight 370.

On Friday, an Australian search official dismissed reports that the data-recording black boxes on missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 had been found, as their battery life ticks down.

We answered those questions and more of yours at 1:15 p.m. ET Friday in a live webcast. Users submitted queries using the hashtag #AskNBCNews on Facebook and Twitter. The webcast was anchored by Anne Thompson and included Tom Costello and former NTSB investigator Greg Feith.
