French investigators have identified a "third entity" that may have withheld technical data about the path taken by the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 the day it disappeared, a report revealed Wednesday.

Investigators have been grappling with the mystery of the Boeing 777's disappearance on March 8, 2014, with 239 people on board.

The plane was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing when it veered off course and vanished, shocking the world and shattering families of those aboard, who still have no idea what happened to their loved ones.

Many investigators have since turned their attentions elsewhere, but French authorities continue their probe into the incident.

This week French national Ghyslain Wattrelos, whose wife and two children were onboard MH370 when it went missing, claimed that investigators had identified the mysterious "third entity" along with "curious passengers" aboard the plane, The International Business Times noted.

The claims were made at a meeting last week with judges who were overseeing the Gendamarie Air Transport (GTA) investigation, where Wattrelos noted "inconsistencies" with the probe.

The GTA is hoping to find information about the flight path taken by MH370 the day it crashed by using satellite and other technical data used by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB).

Last year investigators were planning a trip to the U.S. to meet with the FBI examining the home flight simulator of Captain Zaharie Shah.

Six weeks before the aircraft's disappearance, Shah used his home simulator to fly a route that was initially similar to part of the route flown by MH370 up the Strait of Malacca, with a left-hand turn and track into the southern Indian Ocean.

However, the visit was canceled when U.S. authorities insisted that a "confidentiality clause" be signed to protect Boeing "industry secrets," the International Business Times said.

French investigators, who are once again attempting to make the trip, have reportedly identified the "third entity" which possessed data pertaining to the missing plane's movements and which may have sold software capable of reprogramming the Satcom.

"We are a little angry and now we want to say stop, it is time that the United States really cooperate on this issue," Wattrelos said, according to The International Business Times. "It is necessary to go there because there are three entities that hold important information for understanding what happened on this flight."

Taking to Facebook, Wattrelos said that there were questions surrounding passengers onboard the flight.

He identified a "Malaysian passenger" who had "very good aeronautical knowledge" who reportedly sat directly under the Satcom, as well as "an Iranian" who asked for his Facebook followers to "pray for him" in the days leading to the plane's disappearance.
