(defeo.biz) — Wreckage from missing EgyptAir Flight 804 has been located at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea, according to published reports.

The plane’s voice recorder was also found, CNN reported.

EgyptAir Flight 804 was flying from Paris to Cairo when it crashed last month. Some debris from the aircraft was previously located in the area following the crash, according to reports.

While an exact cause of the crash has yet to be determined, Reuters previously reported, “Egypt’s aviation minister said that a terrorist attack was more likely to have taken down the missing EgyptAir aircraft … than a technical failure.” According to CBS, sensors inside the aircraft indicated there was “smoke in a lavatory and a fault in two of the plane’s cockpit windows” just before the crash.
