Rescue teams in Indonesia resumed their search for the Boeing Co. jet carrying 62 people after uncovering debris that are “strongly suspected” to be part of Sriwijaya Air Flight SJ182, which has been missing since Saturday afternoon.

Emergency signals transmitted by two devices have been detected near the location where the plane is believed to have gone down, Bagus Puruhito, chief of the national search and rescue agency, said in a statement broadcast on TVOne. At least one government agency characterized the incident as a “crash” after the plane lost radio contact shortly following its departure from Jakarta.
