Rodzali Daud told a news conference that the tracking was at 2:15 a.m. local time on Saturday, about 45 minutes after the plane with 239 people on board vanished from air traffic control screens midway between Malaysia's east coast and Vietnam.

- Dog in viral 'kegstand' photo going home to NY college student
By Caurie Putnam BROCKPORT, New York (Reuters) - Mya, the puppy whose photo showing her held upside down above a keg and drinking beer resulted in animal cruelty charges against two college students, was headed back to the off-campus home of her owner on Tuesday. A photo of the 4-month-old black Labrador doing a "kegstand" at the home of students at College at Brockport, part of State University of New York, went viral over the weekend after it was posted on a Twitter account called the SUNY Party Stories page. Two of the roommates, Shane Oliver and Robert Yates, both 20, were charged with misdemeanor torturing or injuring an animal at the multi-unit rental home across from campus. "The dog is in excellent health and going home to the owner," Dog Control Officer Kathy Beaumont said on Tuesday.
