Remains of the missing EgyptAir MS804 airbus have been discovered almost a month after the plane was reported to have crashed into the Mediterranean Sea, an Egyptian search and rescue crew has announced.

Without disclosing the size of the wreckage, Egyptian officials said several main locations of the plane and its contents had been identified, adding that the first images of the debris have already been dispatched.

According to officials, the remains were discovered on Wednesday and immediately a team of investigators was formed to design maps of the wreckage that would help in the search and recovery process.

“A meeting was held between the investigation committee members to study thoroughly the progressive actions taken during the past period and in order to plan how to best handle the wreckage in the coming period,” the Egyptian Ministry of Aviation said in a statement.
