The Search For Missing EgyptAir Continues After Body Part Was Found

EgyptAir flight MS804 was carrying 66 people - including a British dad-of-two - from Paris to Cairo yesterday when it disappeared from radar.

Egypt’s Civil Aviation Ministry confirmed this afternoon that crews have found human remains in the search for the missing Airbus A320.

The parts, discovered in the Mediterranean sea, were found alongside ‘passengers’ belongings’ and plane seats, the ministry said in a statement.

The search area for the plane - which is believed to have plummeted tens of thousands of feet into the ocean - is currently 40 miles, officials said.

However, this will be expanded as necessary.

The cause of the crash remains unknown, but Egypt says the possibility of a terror attack is 'stronger' than that of a technical failure.
