Still no signs of the 239 people onboard. Today in Malaysia, vigils. While here in beijing, families showing their growing frustration. Continue the search, they said. Give us our relatives back.

After 12 months of searching, no real clues. Just some new details in a report released yesterday. Apparently the battery in the underwater locator beacon had expired more than a year before the plane vanished. So it may not have been working. As for the pilot or copilot, no indication they had any responsibility for bringing the plane down. All that is known, at 12:41 A.M. It takes off from Kuala Lumpur. 239 people on board. 2:40 A.M., it's cruising, losing radar contact. As for the search, it's cost close to $100 million.
