Argentina says calls did not come from missing submarine

Sounds detected during search for missing Argentine submarine did not come from vessel

In fact, the sound does not correspond to a submarine, he said.

"We all had hope, but unfortunately this comes from believing sources that are not trustworthy", Mr Balbi said.

Argentine navy spokesman Enrique Balbi from Buenos Aires said that they originally suspected the noises of being a distress signal, but an analysis of the sound disproved that hypothesis, according to CNN. The navy described the sounds as resembling those made by objects striking a submarine's metal hull.

On Monday, Argentina's navy said that the noises which they hoped were coming from tools being banged against the hull of a submarine in Morse code signals have been analyzed.

The noise was heard in the South Atlantic about 220 miles from the Argentine coast and at a depth of about 650ft. More than a dozen worldwide vessels and aircraft have joined the search, which has been hindered by stormy weather that has caused waves up to 20ft (6m).

Families of the 44 crew members are being kept informed of the search, and Galeazzi acknowledged that many expressed "discouragement" after the navy told them that the Saturday report of satellite communication attempts by the crew was in error.

The crew were thought to have several days of food supply, but - unlike nuclear-powered United Kingdom and U.S. submarines - the 66m (216ft) long ARA San Juan is diesel electric, meaning that it has a finite supply of fuel, food and oxygen.

These naval sailors, who are based in San Diego, come equipped with some of the best technological advancements available for such searches.

Pope Francis, a native of Argentina, has offered his "fervent prayers" for the missing crew. The command includes a remotely operated vehicle and vessels capable of rescuing people from bottomed submarines.

Some relatives of the missing crew members took to social media on Monday to ask for support during the search.

Adm. Gabriel Gonzalez of the Mar del Plata Naval Base said Monday that the submarine had sent an alert Wednesday about an unspecified breakdown.

"Every minute is oxygen that's worth gold".

There was hope that the crew was making the constant sound to draw the attention of potential rescuers.

The San Juan is a German-built TR-1700 type diesel-electric submarine.
