The Reuters news agency points out the cockpit voice recorder is one of two so-called black boxes crucial to the investigation of the plane crash.

Haryo Satmiko, deputy chief of Indonesia's transport safety committee said: "It's been found, but we have not received information on the location yet".

The Boeing 737 MAX vanished from radar about 13 minutes after departing Jakarta, slamming into the Java Sea moments after pilots had asked to return to the capital and killing all 189 people onboard.

Findings by KNKT now suggest that Lion Air had put the plane back into service despite it having had problems on earlier flights.

He added that the recorder had "obvious scratches on it", but that it was unclear what damage it had suffered.

Indonesia's Navy spokesman Agung Nugroho was quoted in local media as saying the recorder was found 8m deep under mud on the sea floor.

If the voice recorder's contents end up being undamaged, it could provide valuable additional information to investigators.

The cockpit data recorder showed the jet's airspeed indicator had malfunctioned on its last four flights.

Officials, however, warned it could take up to six months to analyse data from the black boxes.

Investigators say the plane had encountered technical problems. It will take three to five days to dry and clean the device and to download its data, he said.

Rear Adm. Harjo Susmoro, head of the navy's Center for Hydrography and Oceanography, said the voice recorder was found just 50 meters (164 feet) from where the data recorder was located.

Divers have found the second black box from a doomed Lion Air jet that crashed past year killing all 189 people onboard, Indonesian authorities said Monday.

In 2013, one of its Boeing 737-800 jets missed the runway while landing in Bali, crashing into the sea, but all 108 people on board survived.

Lion Air is one of Indonesia's youngest airlines but has grown rapidly, flying to dozens of domestic and worldwide destinations.
