Investigators said signals have been picked up from an emergency transmitter on EgyptAir Flight MS804, NBC News reported.
The Egyptian investigative team said at a news conference in Cairo that signals from one of the three pieces of locator equipment on the plane allowed them to narrow the primary search to about a three-mile area.
The head of the investigation team said a French ship was moved to that location to search for the plane’s black box data recorders. He said search teams are racing to find the black boxes, whose batteries last for only 30 days.
Officials still don’t know what caused the flight to disappear. It was flying from Paris to Cairo when it fell off the radar on the night of May 19.
