SYDNEY, Australia — Australian officials say debris discovered in Madagascar by a man who previously found a part from Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 will be examined by investigators to see if it, too, came from the missing plane.

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau said Friday that they had been contacted about the debris by Blaine Gibson, an American adventurer who has been hunting for Flight 370 over the past year. Gibson told the agency he found a part that may have come from the missing plane in Madagascar. The ATSB says Malaysian authorities have procedures in place to examine any suspected debris, but Australia will help if asked.

In a separate development, a man found a piece of debris on an island off southern Australia that the transport bureau will also examine.
