Egyptian Officials Say EgyptAir Wreckage Found

The Egypt Aviation Ministry confirms the lost Egypt Air wreckage has been found

— -- Egyptian officials confirmed to ABC News Wednesday that wreckage from the ill-fated A320 EgyptAir plane has been found.

The plane, which disappeared from radar and ultimately crashed into the Mediterranean Sea, has been missing for nearly a month. Sixty-six people died in the crash, including 56 passengers and 10 crew members. The majority of the passengers were Egyptian and French.

In a statement released to ABC News, the Egyptian Aviation Ministry confirmed a search team and investigators on board the search vessel are already deciding how to split up and search for the wreckage.

"Immediately a meeting was held between the investigation committee members to study thoroughly the progressive actions taken during the past period and in order to plan how to best handle the wreckage in the coming period," the Ministry said in the statement.

However, the statement did not include any mention of the black boxes, which will hopefully give investigators insight as to why the plane crashed into the water.

EgyptAir 804 left Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport at 11:09 p.m. local time May 18 and lost contact with the radar tracking system over the Mediterranean Sea at 2:45 a.m., not far from its intended destination in Cairo, according to the airline.
