Cell phone tower detected Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 co-pilot's phone

A U.S. official tells CNN the phone of the co-pilot of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was on and made contact with a cell tower in Penang, Malaysia, about 250 miles from where the plane's transponder last sent a signal.

Based on data provided by Malaysian authorities, the official says the phone was searching for service, and that, of the 238 other people on board, only his phone pinged the tower and no other phone was detected.

Was the co-pilot trying to make a call?
