After waiting for five years without any answers of useful traces, the families of passengers of the ill fated MH370 flight have decided to seek closure of the case.
Starved for information and struggling to resume their lives, the families have come to lean on each other for support over the years, as they sought answers over the situation of their relatives.
Reports say there were about 239 people onboard the Boeing 777 when it vanished enroute from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014 and became the world’s greatest aviation mystery.
According to Jacquita Gonzales, whose husband Patrick Gomes was MH370’s inflight supervisor, the affected families have been supporting one another in the last five years.
“It goes beyond a group waiting for answers,” said Gonzales, a 57-year-old kindergarten teacher who often hosts the group at her home on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur.
“It has become a family as well, an extended family,” she told Reuters.
Scraps of aircraft debris have washed up on the east African coastline, but two underwater searches in the southern Indian Ocean proved fruitless, leaving few clues as to what happened.
