Here are the latest reports about the gone missing Egypt Air flight.

EgyptAir Flight 804 from Paris to Cairo disappeared from radar over the Mediterranean Sea with 66 people on board early Thursday. Here's what we know so far:

• Greek controllers tried to reach the Airbus A320 when it crossed through Greek airspace but got no response.

• When the plane reached Cairo airspace, it swerved sharply then plunged from 37,000 feet into the Mediterranean, Greece says.

• A distress signal was detected in the vicinity where the flight disappeared from radar 2 hours later, but it could have come from another vessel.

• The cause behind the disappearance is more likely terrorism than a technical issue, Egypt's civil aviation minister says.
