Families of the 239 passengers and crew aboard Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 are reacting to an announcement by the governments of Malaysia, Australia and China that they will suspend the hunt for the jetliner once they have covered the current search area in the southern Indian Ocean at the end of the year. The plane disappeared while on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014.

Although the statement by the three transport ministers, released in the Malaysian capital of Putrajaya on Friday, says the search will be suspended and not ended, the ministers acknowledged that “the likelihood of finding the aircraft is fading.”
