The New York Police Department says it's found a piece of a plane that crashed into the World Trade Center on 9/11 more than a decade ago.

A piece of landing gear was found wedged between two buildings near Park Place downtown, according to CBS Local.

A Boeing identification number is visible on the part. Police will consider sifting through soil in search of human remains.

Surveyors were inspecting the rear of 51 Park Place earlier this week when they found what they called "damaged machinery" behind the building. They called 911 to report it, according to a press release from the NYPD.
