Officials from the Egyptian government have announced that search teams have found the wreckage from missing EgyptAir Flight 804, which crashed into the Mediterranean Sea on May 19.

According to The Associated Press, the Egyptian Civil Aviation Ministry announced Wednesday that a search vessel looking for the black boxes from EgyptAir Flight 804 had found several main locations of the wreckage.

Images of the wreckage were handed over to an Egyptian investigative committee, and crews on the search vessel are now expected to draw a map for the distribution spots to further identify the location of the debris on the seafloor.

EgyptAir Flight 804 went missing in May during a flight from Paris to Cairo with 66 people onboard. Earlier this month, a French ship believed it had found the pings from the plane’s black boxes, and the wreckage was discovered Wednesday.
