Search ends for the day; some objects retrieved

PERTH, Australia (AP) - The second day of searching a new part of the Indian Ocean has ended with no confirmed sign of the missing Malaysia jetliner.

A Chinese military plane did spot several objects floating in the sea, including two bearing colors of the missing plane.

But investigators won't know if the objects are from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 until they can be recovered and examined.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority, which is overseeing the search, says ships from China and Australia scooped up items described only as "objects from the ocean" but none were "confirmed to be related" to Flight 370.

Malaysia's defense minister says he's hoping for new information but there isn't any so far on the latest reports of debris being spotted from the air in the search for a missing Malaysian airliner.

He says none of the debris that's been spotted from the air has been recovered by ships in the search area and that recovery is a key factor because any debris needs to be analyzed to determine if ti's from Malaysia Airlines flight 370.

A Chinese aircraft spotted three suspicious objects floating in the newest search area today.

Flight 370 disappeared March 8 while bound from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Investigators believed it crashed in the southern Indian Ocean, where planes and ships have been looking to recover any debris.
