Is it finally an answer grieving families have wanted for more than a year since a Malaysia airlines plane disappeared? Debris has washed ashore.

FOX News Radio's Simon Owen reports:

Crusted with barnacles, what's thought to be a piece of an airplane's wing found on the island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean.

Malaysia's Prime Minister saying it's likely part of a Boeing 777, the same model used for Flight MH370.

Warren Truss, the Deputy Prime Minister of Australia, which has been leading the search, saying it's the first real evidence that wreckage may have been found.

(Truss) "It's too early to make that judgement but, clearly we are treating this as a major lead."

The part will now be examined in France.
