Egyptian media also reporting the development, but so far, there has been no official confirmation. The Egyptian air jet en route from Paris to Cairo sent a series of warnings indicating smoke had been detected on board shortly before it disappeared off radar screens over the Mediterranean Thursday. French investigators said the signal do not indicate what caused the smoke or fire on board the plane which went down with 66 passenger and crew.

While the black boxes might offer answers to investigators, they'll likely provide little comfort to grief stricken friends and families of those missing, presumed dead.
