BEIJING (AP) -- Vietnamese media reported that authorities have detected signals from a missing Malaysia Airlines flight off the southwestern coast of Vietnam on Saturday, hours after the flight went missing during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Website VN Express said a Vietnamese search and rescue official reported that the signals were detected from about 120 nautical miles (140 miles; 225 kilometers) southwest of Vietnam's southernmost Ca Mau province.

The Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200 carrying 239 people lost contact early Saturday morning over the South China Sea between Malaysia and Vietnam.
