Towelette with Malaysia Airlines logo washes up on Western Australia beach

In a new twist in the continuing saga of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, a towelette that was washed up on a Western Australia beach is now being examined to try and find out if it could have come from the disappeared plane.

The small pre-moistened paper towel that was in a Malaysia Airlines sealed packet has been sent to Canberra for testing and verification after being found by a couple walking along a beach in Cervantes in July last year.

The news comes just days after the one year anniversary of the plane's disappearance, with 239 people on board.

Kingsley and Vicki Miller discovered the unopened packet at Cervantes, 200 kilometres north of Perth, and said it was ‘unopened, which was very unusual’.
