Canberra - An Australian navy P-3 plane failed to locate suspicious debris of the missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 flight, Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) said on Thursday.

"P3 crew unable to locate debris" due to cloud and rain, which limited visibility, AMSA said through its Twitter account.

It said further aircraft will continue search for the flight, which lost contact with the ground 12 days ago en route from Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

The Australian government said earlier Thursday that they had spotted on satellite images two objects possibly related to the missing plane in the southern Indian Ocean, approximately 2,500 km southwest of Australian port city of Perth.

An AMSA staff member told Xinhua that it might take days before rescuers can finally confirm whether the suspicious objects belong to the missing plane.
