NEW ORLEANS — A federal official said Sunday that scientists are concerned about a seep and possible methane seen near BP's broken oil well in the Gulf of Mexico.

Both could be signs there are leaks in the well that's been capped off for three days.

The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Sunday because an announcement about the next steps had not yet been made.
