Officials have ended the search for missing Malaysian Airlines flight No. 370, according to published reports.

“Despite every effort using the best science available, cutting edge technology, as well as modeling and advice from highly skilled professionals who are the best in their field, unfortunately, the search has not been able to locate the aircraft,” officials said in a statement.

“The decision to suspend the underwater search has not been taken lightly nor without sadness.”

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 227 passengers and 12 crew when the Boeing 777 disappeared from radar over the Gulf of Thailand on March 8, 2014.

Though the plane was never found, a “flaperon” from a Boeing 777 found on the French island of Réunion in August 2015 was determined to be from the missing flight.
