NEW YORK, NY. (WIAT) — A piece of airplane debris that is also believed to be a part of one 9/11 planes is now in custody of the New York Police Department (NYPD).

It took officers of nearly two hours to load the debris on a truck using a pulley system.

The wing piece was found last week in an alley, wedged between an apartment building and a mosque.

Following the discovery, medical examiners searched for human remains surrounding the piece of debris and in the rest of the alley.

The search did not produce any evidence of human remains.

The wing piece is now headed to the NYPD’s Brooklyn facility.
