Sydney – Australian officials say a piece of debris recently found on an Indian Ocean island where a wing fragment from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 had previously washed ashore is unlikely to be from the missing plane.

The piece was discovered earlier this month on French-governed Reunion Island by Johnny Begue. Begue had found a wing part on Reunion in July that came from Flight 370, which disappeared in March 2014.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau said on Wednesday that French authorities examining the latest piece have determined that it's unlikely to be from the missing Boeing 777.

The wing fragment found in July remains the only confirmed debris from Flight 370. Two other pieces of debris that washed ashore in Mozambique have yet to be examined by investigators.
