La Reunion man who found MH370 flight part finds new item

The man who found a wing fragment of the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 that disappeared nearly two years ago on a beach in the French Indian Ocean island of La Reunion has found an unidentified gray item with blue border in nearly the same spot.

Johny Begue told The Associated Press on Sunday that he found the piece Thursday and turned it into the gendarmerie on Friday morning. A special gendarmerie air brigade in Saint Denis, the capital of La Reunion, confirmed it received the item.

Begue found a wing fragment known as a flaperon on July 29 that French investigators identified in September as part of the passenger jet that disappeared with 239 people aboard on March 8, 2014.

Begue said there were no barnacles on the latest item.
