March 26, 2015 at 06:10 GMT +00:00 · Published

The German authorities started searching the apartment of Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz in Dusseldorf-Unterbach, after they also scanned his parent's house 100 kilometres (62 miles) further away in Montabour, Thursday.

Senior prosecutor Ralf Herrenbruck from Dusseldorf declared in a press statement that the investigations were being executed to find more details about a possible motive for the intentional descent in which Lubitz is suspected of committing suicide and killing 149 others.

After evaluating the Airbus A320 voice recorder, investigators concluded that Lubitz locked the flight's captain out of the cockpit to then start the fatal descent into the French Alps.

The Germanwings 4U 9525 flight crashed en route from Barcelona to Dusseldorf with 144 passengers and six crew members on board on Tuesday. It is believed that there are no survivors.
