    Italy's coast guard service has been looking for a missing F-16 US fighter jet off the country's Adriatic coast.

    Italian and US aircraft are also involved in the search for the jet and its pilot, believed to have
    been the only person aboard.

    Air traffic control lost contact with the F-16 on Monday evening, but fog and darkness hampered the search overnight.
