Underwater pings relocated in hunt for missing jet

Posted: Updated:
PERTH, Australia (AP) -- An Australian official says equipment on a ship searching for the missing Malaysian jet has relocated an underwater signal that is consistent with a plane's black box.

On Wednesday, Angus Houston, the head of a joint agency coordinating the search in the southern Indian Oceans, said the Australian navy's Ocean Shield has picked up two more signals that could be from Flight 370.

The Ocean Shield first detected the sounds late Saturday and early Sunday before losing them.  Houston says the ship relocated the signals twice on Tuesday.

The ship is equipped with a U.S. Navy towed pinger locator that is designed to pick up signals from black boxes of planes.
