SYDNEY (AP) - A team of Australian researchers looking into the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has released data about an unusual underwater sound recorded around the time the plane vanished. But the lead scientist says the chances it is linked to the jet are slim.

The low-frequency sound was picked up by underwater listening devices in the Indian Ocean off the west coast of Australia on March 8, the same day the plane disappeared. Researchers at Curtin University in Western Australia have been analyzing the signal to see if it may be the sound of the plane crashing into the ocean.

But lead researcher Alec Duncan says the sound appears to have originated well outside the jet's projected flight path and is therefore unlikely to have come from the plane.
