Latest signal not missing plane, Australia says

Sydney - The latest signal reported in the search for a missing Malaysia Airlines jet in the Indian Ocean probably did not come from the plane, the body coordinating the hunt said Friday.

"The signal reported in the vicinity of the Australian Defence vessel Ocean Shield is unlikely to be related to the aircraft black boxes," Search leader Angus Houston told reporters in Perth.

The statement came after analysis of the data from sound-locating buoys dropped by a Australian patrol plane Thursday near where a navy ship had monitored a possible signal from the missing Boeing 777.
