Indonesia’s search and rescue agency chief said on Tuesday he was 95 percent certain debris sighted off Indonesia’s Kalimantan coast was part of the AirAsia jet presumed to have crashed two days ago.

An Airbus A320-200 carrying 162 people and operated by Indonesia AirAsia disappeared in poor weather early on Sunday during a flight from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore.

“I am 95 percent sure that the location pictured is debris suspected to be from the aircraft,” Indonesia Search and Rescue Agency chief Soelistyo told reporters.

The Jakarta Post is also reporting some of the quotes from the transport ministry’s acting director general Djoko Murjatmodjo. They are reporting that he has confirmed the debris is from a plane:

“It has been confirmed that it is debris from an aircraft bearing red and white colors,” Djoko said, citing that the debris was found by the ministry’s rescue team.

“The recovery process will now be centered in the debris location in coordination with Basarnas [the National Search and Rescue Agency],” he continued.

The Indonesian search agency has just finished a press conference held in Bahasa with local media. At this stage, Reuters has issued this brief alert on what transpired:

There are reports emerging that the Indonesian search authorities are about to give a press conference about the objects found. The maritime body BASARNAS appears to be about to begin a press conference

Red and white debris sighted off Indonesia’s Kalimantan coast is likely to be part the AirAsia jet presumed to have crashed in shallow waters off the Indonesian coast, a transportation ministry official cited by Reuters said on Tuesday.

“The debris is red and white,” Djoko Murjatmodjo, acting director general of air transportation at the transportation ministry, told reporters. “We are checking if it’s debris from the aircraft. It’s probably from the body of the aircraft.”

Based on the size and colouring of the debris, it was likely to be part of the missing jet, Murjatmodjo added.

Helicopters are preparing to go and examine the location as soon as weather permits, he said. Now I’m handing over to my colleague Paul Farrell, who will take you through the next few hours.

The Wall Street Journal’s Jason Ng is reporting that Indonesian officials believe the debris is from a plane but cannot confirm it belongs to the missing AirAsia flight.

Here are some higher resolution photos of three of the pieces of debris that Indonesian official say might belong to the missing AirAsia flight.
