FRANCE (NEWS10) – French officials say a piece of debris found on the coast of an island in the Indian Ocean will be taken to France Friday for further examination.

The debris is believed to be a piece of a Boeing 777, and its location has many thinking it could be part of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, which disappeared in March 2014.

French helicopters are scouring the area where the debris was found, hoping to find more debris possibly linked to the plane. French authorities have been conducting their own investigation into the plane’s disappearance, since French citizens were on board.

Meanwhile, authorities in Australia say a suitcase found nearby is not believed to be related.
