Blaine Gibson, a US lawyer from Seattle found the debris. Gibson launched a self-funded mission to know the whereabouts of the missing plane, reported the CNN.

With an aim to recover the missing plane he travelled from the Maldives, to Mauritius and Myanmar.

"I've been very involved in the search for Malaysia 370, just out of personal interest and in a private group -- not in a for-profit way or journalistic way," said Gibson.

"I went for the one year commemoration in Kuala Lumpur and met some of the family members and families and it inspired me to keep on looking."

He has since trawled beaches, spoken to witnesses, and interviewed people who have reported debris; all in a singular effort to discover the truth of what happened to the ill-fated flight.

Flight MH370 with 239 people onboard, left Kuala Lumpur on March 8 2014, scheduled to land in Beijing roughly six hours later, but it disappeared from the radar screens some 40 minutes after takeoff.
