As the third anniversary of the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 approaches, families of travelers who died on the plane are vowing to keep up the hunt for the missing airliner -- and now two private funds have been set up to finance the work.
Grace Nathan, the daughter of a passenger on the flight, said she hoped to raise $15 million to continue to search the South Indian Ocean for the airliner that disappeared on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing three years ago Wednesday.
The Australian and Malaysian governments gave up looking in January.
It was always improbable that the airplane, which may have come apart in flight, would be found in a deep and immense ocean.
Focusing on finding the lost jet has distracted investigators from other clues that could determine what triggered the plane to turn off course.
But in London, insurers for the airline are very close to bringing the uncertainty to an end.
