A metal object washed up on Malaysia’s eastern coast, prompting speculation that debris from the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 may have surfaced.

The object is six and a half feet long.

It was spotted floating in the waters off the Malaysian coastline on Wednesday.

Flight MH370 disappeared with 239 people on board in March 2014.
