Greek public broadcaster ERT reported that a Greek frigate searching for the missing Egyptair Airbus A320, en route from Paris Charles de Gaulle to Cairo, found two plastic floating objects in a sea area 230 miles south of the island of Crete, 100 nautical miles away off the southeastern island of Karpathos, on Thursday. Greek defense sources said that the red and white objects were spotted close to an area where a transponder signal was emitted earlier.
There was surprise that the wreckage, yet to be officially identified, was found so far away from the area where it was believed to have been lost. Winds in the area would not precipitate such movement. Greek media is reporting that debris found could be life jackets.
