The debris that turned up on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean Saturday is indeed the cargo ship that vanished in a hurricane, the National Transportation Safety Board confirmed Monday.

The wreckage was found in 15,000 feet of water east of the Bahamas, nearly a month after the El Faro went missing during Hurricane Joaquin. All 33 crewmembers on board were lost.
