Frustrated families of passengers on board the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 are launching a “Reward MH370” campaign on crowdfunding website Indiegogo to raise five million USD for any insider who possesses the “missing piece of this puzzle” on the fate of the plane.
As false leads wash up and officials have announce that the search might go on for months or even years, families are starting to lose faith in their respective governments.
“We are convinced that somewhere, someone knows something, and we hope this reward will entice him or her to come forward,” said Ethan Hunt, who is leading the online financing for a group of families from Australia, the United States, India and France […].
Sarah Bajc, partner of American passenger Philip Wood, said a handful of families were behind the campaign to look at the unprecedented aviation mystery with “a fresh set of eyes.”
“Governments and agencies have given it their best shot but have failed to turn up a single shred of evidence, either because of a faulty approach or due to intentional misdirection by one or more individuals,” she said.
“Without a new tactic, the truth and the plane will never be found.”
Here is what is known, amidst speculation, about Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.
The last lead on the missing flight came from a British sailor who claimed to have seen the plane on fire in the night sky before it vanished.
