MH370 families issue emotional plea for open-ended search

Kuala Lumpur: Families of MH370 passengers on Thursday issued an emotional plea to authorities to keep searching for the missing plane beyond an expected mid-year completion date, for the sake of distressed relatives and future aviation safety.
An Australian-led Indian Ocean hunt for wreckage from the Malaysia Airlines plane is expected to finish scouring a designated deep-sea zone by July, and authorities plan to end the search if nothing is found.
But Voice370, an international next-of-kin network, issued a statement Thursday pleading with the governments involved to keep searching until something is found.
"Voice370 urges authorities to press on and search on in the current search area," said Voice370.
"We believe that they should not throw in the towel, close this case and simply chalk it up as an unsolvable mystery."
The statement was issued just days ahead of the second anniversary of the flight's mysterious March 8, 2014 disappearance.
Voice370 said families' pain had not eased with the passage of two "agonising" years.
