‘Plane Still Missing, Wreckage Not Yet Found’, EgyptAir Retracts
Egyptian and Greek authorities appear to have gotten on the same page, at least to some degree: EgyptAir has retracted its earlier “confirmation” of found debris to CNN.
The airline has yet to make any public statement, but multiple CNN editors and correspondents are reporting that they managed to contact EgyptAir.
Earlier on Thursday the airline’s vice-president personally told CNN he could confirm that MS804 debris had been recovered, only for that report to be contradicted by Greek officials assisting with the search.
BREAKING Egyptair had originally told #CNN “We have found the wreckage,” but they have retracted. Flight with 66 ppl aboard is still MISSING
