Paris: The French accident investigation agency says a search in a new area of the Atlantic for the Air France plane that crashed en route from Rio de Janeiro to Paris has turned up nothing.

The zone was located by analysing signals from the plane`s black boxes, which are still unrecovered.

The investigating agency said in a statement on Wednesday that nothing was found in the ocean depths.

The conclusion came just two days after the agency said the plane, which crashed on June 01, 2009, could be found by Wednesday.
Investigators say they have decided to return to the original search zone, northwest of the last known airplane position while continuing to determine the accuracy of the black box signals, which long ago died out.
