A new lead in the hunt for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet.

FOX News Radio's Simon Owen reports:

Australian authorities releasing satellite images showing potential debris found in the southern Indian Ocean.

(Abbott) "Following specialist analysis of this satellite imagery two possible objects related to the search have been identified."

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott saying two objects were spotted floating around 1,500 miles southwest of Perth, Australia.

Abbott stressing there's no guarantee this is a breakthrough in the search for the plane -- now 12 days old. But it's being seen as a strong lead. Officials say it could take several days to confirm if the objects were parts of the plane.
