No Additional Sounds Heard in Search for Missing Plane

Posted: Updated:

Search crews in the Indian Ocean haven't been picking up any more of the faint underwater sounds they were hearing a few days ago. 
 
They were hoping that the sounds might be coming from the black box voice and data recorders from the missing Malaysian jetliner. But the batteries that send the signal from those devices are probably running out. 
 
The signals were heard Saturday and Sunday, but not since then. 

The Boeing 777 vanished March 8 while flying from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Beijing with 239 people on board.

The focus of the search has changed repeatedly. It began in the South China Sea, then shifted toward the Strait of Malacca to the west, and then to several locations in the southern Indian Ocean as an analysis of satellite and radar data indicated the plane veered far off course for a still-unknown reason.
