Australian and Malaysian authorities said Friday the debris found on the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius belonged to the Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 which went missing in March 2014. A piece of the wing flap from the Boeing 777 aircraft was found in May this year.

Experts at the Australian Transport Safety Bureau used a part number found on the wing flap to link it to the missing plane. The ATSB is leading the search for the plane off Australia’s west coast. Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai also confirmed that the debris belonged to flight MH370.

"From a part number found on a section of the debris, the piece has been identified as a trailing edge splice strap, incorporated into the rear spar assembly of a Boeing 777 left outboard flap," Liow reportedly said.
