Signals from EgyptAir's unrecovered "black boxes" are expected to stop emitting soon, giving investigators less than a few weeks to find the cockpit voice and flight data recorders while they are still pinging, according to NBC News.

EgyptAir Flight MS804 crashed in the Mediterranean Sea May 19, killing 66 people on board. The recorders could hold critical information on why the airliner went down and discovering them would become much more difficult without the signal.

Investigators have said finding the signal in 10,000 feet of water requires coming within a few meters of the pingers.

Egyptian authorities are leading the investigation, according to Reuters. The National Transportation Safety Board is sending a representative to join the investigation team because the plane's engine was built by a consortium led by Pratt & Whitney, a U.S. firm.

Egyptian air control had said the airplane disappeared off radar while cruising about 37,000 feet, reported Reuters. Investigators said Monday, though, that plane appeared to swerve in mid-air before crashing, according to Greek and British radar data reports.

The flight was traveling from Paris to Cairo before the crash, said Bloomberg.

The French ship La Place has received signals from the seabed in the search area, and the John Lethbridge, a vessel from Deep Ocean Search Ltd., has joined the hunt to scan the ocean floor for the voice recorders, said Bloomberg.
