WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Time stamps from the flight data filed through the Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) and obtained by CNN through a screen grab from an Egyptian source match the "approximate" time the plane went missing, CNN said on Friday.

On Thursday, the EgyptAir Airbus A320 plane, carrying a total of 66 people, disappeared from radar screens over the Mediterranean Sea, 10 miles into Egyptian airspace. The plane was headed from Paris to Cairo.

EgyptAir has said via Twitter that the Egyptian Armed Forces have discovered the wreckage and personal items from flight MS804 295 kilometers (183 miles) from the coast of Alexandria.

Despite several reports that the EgyptAir plane's wreckage has been found, the airline has said that the investigators are still searching for the remains of the missing plane.

Countries including Greece, France, the United States and Egypt are involved in the search operations.
