Australian officials just announced that two signals had been detected by the vessel Ocean Shield, but the signals had not been re-acquired. One signal lasted 2 hours and 20 minutes and the other, 13 minutes.
Two distinct pinger returns had been detected in the northern part of the search area.
An official said the information was encouraging but will need to be confirmed.
Officials said it could be "some days'' before the signals are confirmed as coming from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight.
