(CNN) - With crews from around the world aiding in the search, 30 bodies have been recovered from the wreckage of AirAsia Flight QZ8501, Indonesian officials said Friday.

Finding the fuselage and the plane's "black boxes" are a priority, Indonesia's search and rescue agency said Friday. There are 59 teams of divers involved, the agency's chief Bambang Sulistyo said, according to the state-run Antara news agency.

The USS Sampson, the U.S. Navy ship that is helping with the search, recovered two of the bodies, the U.S. Seventh Fleet said Friday.
