A man searching for remnants of missing Malaysia Airlines MH370 found two new pieces of debris on the east coast of Madagascar, but investigators are still looking to confirm their connection to the flight.
According to BBC.com, Blaine Gibson is the man who discovered the latest pieces of debris, but it isn’t the first time he has found remnants of the missing plane. Gibson has dedicated himself to finding pieces of the plane, and his latest discovery was made on Riake beach in Madagascar.
A British engineer named Don Thompson told BBC.com that he believes one of the pieces was from the back of a seat on a Malaysia Airlines aircraft and the other looks like a cover panel on a plane wing.
Gibson has sent images of the debris to investigators at the Australian Transport Safety Bureau and officials in Malaysia, but they still must be confirmed by research teams. In addition, debris was discovered on Kangaroo Island in South Australia, which also must be confirmed by experts.
There have been several pieces of debris from the missing MH370 discovered in the Madagascar area over the last several months, which investigators believe confirms the plane crashed in the area search teams are currently combing.
Investigators believe flight MH370 crashed into the southern Indian Ocean after veering off course. There were 239 people onboard when the plane disappeared in March 2014.
