    Another presumably human bone fragment was found in the third-floor restaurant area of the wreck of the ferry Sewol on Wednesday.

    Last Friday, a bone fragment was also found there. The National Forensic Service will carry out DNA tests.

    The central area of the third floor has been frequently mentioned as one of the most likely places to find more remains of missing passengers who perished when the ferry sank in April 2014.

    It is a wide open space which housed a restaurant and a cafe, and had a staircase to the fourth floor.

    Since the ferry was raised, the remains of four missing people have been identified, while five remain officially missing.
