Search suspended for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370

Move comes nearly three years after vast undersea area in Indian Ocean is combed

KUALA LUMPUR -- The search for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 has been suspended, nearly three years after the plane went missing over the Indian Ocean, authorities said on Tuesday.

"Despite every effort using the best science available, cutting edge technology, as well as modelling and advice from highly skilled professionals who are the best in their field, unfortunately, the search has not been able to locate the aircraft," said a joint statement from the transport ministers of Australia, China and Malaysia.
