CAIRO — Greek authorities said on Thursday a search was still underway off a remote Greek island for possible remains of a missing EgyptAir aircraft, with nothing being found.

Earlier on Thursday, an EgyptAir said the Egyptian Foreign Ministry had confirmed to the Egyptian Civil Aviation Ministry that wreckages of the missing plane were found close to the Greek Island of Karpathos.

Those reports were shortly denied by Greek officials who said the objects they found during the ongoing search operations do not belong to the Egyptian aircraft.

An EgyptAir source said the Arabic version of a press statement on the possibility of finding parts of the missing airplane was mistakenly translated into English by EgyptAir’s official Facebook page, which caused confusion.

The source further explained that EgyptAir has never confirmed the finding of any wreckage. “In the Arabic version, we only spoke about the possibility that the objects found might belong to the airplane,” it said.

EgyptAir has earlier conformed that the missing plane, an Airbus A320, disappeared from radar screens en route from Paris to Cairo at 2:45 a.m. Cairo local time on Thursday.

The flight had 66 people aboard, including 30 Egyptians, 15 French, two Iraqis and nine others each from Algeria, Belgium, Portugal, Britain, Canada, Chad, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Sudan.
