The FBI has obtained a parachute found where famed hijacker D.B. Cooper is believed to have jumped, and the bureau is seeking the public's help in what may be a major break in the world's only unsolved hijacking.

The parachute -- similar to the one Cooper jumped with -- was unearthed earlier this month after a Clark County man plowed part of the rural property he's owned for nearly a decade, said Larry Carr, the lead agent on the Cooper case. The man's children found the parachute when they were playing and Carr, who is based in Seattle, retrieved it from southwest Washington.

"If D.B. Cooper had pulled his chute not long after that jump, he would have landed in that area," Carr said. "Is this D.B. Cooper's parachute? We don't know yet."

On Nov. 24, 1971, a man who identified himself as Dan Cooper boarded a commercial Portland-to-Seattle fight and demanded $200,000 and four parachutes.

One of the parachutes was left on the plane; another was cut to secure the ransom money he leapt with about 20 miles north of Portland, going 196 mph, 10,000 feet in the air, according to FBI records.
