A report into the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 is expected to be released later, coinciding with the one-year anniversary of the greatest mystery in the history of aviation.

As families of those on the Boeing 777, which had been travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, marked the anniversary, the Malaysian prime minister said he is hopeful the plane will be found.

Najib Razak said: “The lack of answers and definitive proof – such as aircraft wreckage – has made this more difficult to bear.

“Together with our international partners, we have followed the little evidence that exists. Malaysia remains committed to the search, and hopeful that MH370 will be found.”

While the country’s government has already formally declared the disappearance of the plane as an accident, and said all 239 people on board are presumed dead, relatives of those on the flight have said they are frustrated by the lack of answers.

Ministers from Australia, China and Malaysia are expected to meet next month to decide on the next course of action for the wide-ranging search which has so far proved fruitless.

Australian prime minster Tony Abbott said earlier this week: ” I can’t promise that the search will go on at this intensity forever.”
