Investigators have found cellphones amid the debris of the German jet crash in the French Alps, but the phones have not yet produced any clues about what happened.

Lt. Col. Jean-Marc Menichini said Thursday that the phones that have been found had not yet been thoroughly examined. He would not elaborate.

Investigators believe co-pilot Andreas Lubitz intentionally crashed the Germanwings A320 into a mountainside, based on recordings from the cockpit voice recorder. Special mountain troops continued searching the area Thursday for personal belongings and the second black box flight recorder.
