SUBARAYA, INDONESIA (CNN) - Indonesia's top rescue official said authorities believe the missing AirAsia flight is likely at the bottom of the sea, based on radar data from the plane's last contact. "[Because] the coordinate that was given to us and the evolution from the calculation point of the flight track is at sea, our early conjecture is that the plane is in the bottom of the sea," said Marsdya Tni Hendry Bambang, head of Indonesia's national search and rescue agency. 
Authorities reported Monday that Australian planes spotted objects in the ocean in the AirAsia search area. It wasn't yet confirmed if these objects were related to the missing plane.
The search for missing AirAsia Flight QZ8501 resumed on Monday, a day after the commercial jet disappeared in Indonesian airspace with 162 people aboard.
Ships, planes and helicopters are searching for the missing aircraft, Indonesian authorities said.
It's unclear if weather played a role in the aircraft's disappearance, but rescuers said it could be a factor that influences how quickly they find the plane.
Large waves and clouds hampered the search for the plane on Sunday, the agency said. By Monday morning, weather in the area appeared to be clearing up, CNN International meteorologist Tom Sater said.
Authorities say they plan to divide what they called a "very broad search area" into four sections of 120 by 240 nautical miles.
AirAsia says air traffic controllers lost contact with the aircraft at 7:24 a.m. Sunday Singapore time (6:24 a.m. in Indonesia).
