The newly-found wreckage was an approximate 30 by 30 cm square frame, with all the edges and corners round-shaped. The recovered wreckage looked like a porthole frame of a plane. However, nothing yet indicated that it was linked to the missing aircraft.
The founder reportedly discovered another piece of metallic wreckage last Sunday in the same area. However, the debris, with two Chinese characters monogrammed on it, finally tested to be not linked to any aircraft. The coastline of Reunion island in the western Indian Ocean is being scoured for more debris that could be linked to the missing aircraft.
The wreckage found on July 29 and a piece of luggage bearing a burnt patch picked up one day later have been sent to the French city of Toulouse where investigations over its identity are scheduled to start on Wednesday.
