sheer scale of our search area,
By Riley Beveridge

CANBERRA Celtics Paul Pierce Jersey , March 7 (Xinhua) -- Twelve months after the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, the leader of the search effort in the southern Indian Ocean, Martin Dolan, has an unambiguous message for the families of those missing -- "We remain positive about finding the aircraft ... and we're certainly nowhere even near thinking about giving up."

Vigils are being held across the globe marking one year anniversary of MH370 since the Boeing 777, carrying 239 people, lost contact with air traffic controllers on March 8 Celtics Larry Bird Jersey , 2014 en route to Beijing after departing from Kuala Lumpur just 38 minutes earlier.

What has happened to the flight after it vanished from the radar screens remains unknown. Even after 365 days of strenuous search efforts, there have been no remnants of the plane found, no flotsam spotted at sea, nothing at all to indicate where a gleaming modern passenger jet might have pitched into the ocean.

The MH370 search area is now restricted to a narrow band of the Indian Ocean off the coast of Fremantle in Western Australia and Dolan, the chief commissioner of the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB), is the man charged with leading that needle-in-a- haystack operation.

In an interview with Xinhua marking the one-year anniversary of the plane's disappearance Celtics Bill Russell Jersey , Dolan conceded the search was becoming "more difficult" as time progressed but said he and his team remained resolute in their determination to find the wreckage, and

finally give some closure to the passengers' grief-stricken families.

Chinese and Malaysian citizens made up the majority of those on board, but families from Australia, France, Iran, Russia and the United States have also been affected by the aircraft's mysterious disappearance.

The multinational passenger list has provided an added layer of complexity and sensitivity to Dolan's job. With every update publicly and globally scrutinized Celtics Kyrie Irving Jersey , an already high-pressure situation is made more difficult for the ATSB.

Families of passengers have been frustrated by the lack of evidence in the case, and the apparent lack of progress made by the search teams. The absence of any answers, or any meaningful explanation surrounding the flight's disappearance, has only compounded their sense of grief.

"We're doing our best to explain to all of the families what we are doing, why we are searching the area we are searching and why it's a high priority for our search," Dolan told Xinhua. "But also what is driving us for this search are their expectations.

"In these times where everyone is a bit uncertain Authentic Al Horford Jersey , particularly with significant dates like this anniversary, it becomes even more difficult. But the clear message we want the families to have is we are positive about finding the aircraft and focused on doing it and our search continues.

"As far as we can tell, there are some families that feel they' re not getting enough information and some that just want to know there's been results. At the moment, we can't give results, but what we can give is a clear message that we are continuing the work, are totally committed to it and expect there will be a result. We just can't tell them when."

In January Authentic Gordon Hayward Jersey , the Malaysian government released a statement declaring that the MH370 tragedy was "an accident" and that all passengers on board were "presumed dead." But with no evidence obtained to support their claims, some families reacted with anger.

"They are lying," said American Sarah Bajic, whose partner was on flight MH370. "It is impossible to bring closure until we have proof."

"Accident with what? It is just an excuse to declare it so they can make an announcement on the deaths," said Malaysian woman Syafinaz Hasnan, whose brother was on board.

Malaysia made the statement through the Department of Civil Aviation and their decision to not speak to each family individually served to upset those affected. "They don't have the guts to announce it right to our face Authentic Paul Pierce Jersey ," said Mohammed Sahril Shaai, whose sibling was a passenger..

Dolan said balancing the best interests of families with such a large investigation has been a stressful task.

"The key pressure is the expectation of the families," Dolan said. "There's also a level of attention by the world media and a range of competing theories as to what might have happened.

"So part of this is just continuing the challenge of explaining ourselves. Yes, there are big challenges like relying on complex analysis of limited satellite data, the complexity of rain in the subsea area that we are searching and the sheer scale of our search area, together with the fact we're in the southern Indian Ocean six or seven days (a week) sailing from shore in what are often really bad weather conditions."

"All of those are challenges Authentic Larry Bird Jersey , but challenges we factored into our planning and execution and we think we are rising to the challenge pretty well. It's tough, but it's a toughness we were expecting."

Dolan believed Air France flight 447, which went missing off the coast of Brazil in June 2009, killing all 228 people on board, is the only event comparable to MH370. Although all passengers were announced dead on the same day the flight went missing, the plane's black boxes weren't recovered for nearly two years.

But MH370's disappearance is more mysterious still Authentic Bill Russell Jersey , because not one skerrick of evidence has emerged so far to indicate where, why and how the jet vanished, for all intents and purposes, from the face of the earth. Dolan called the case "unprecedented."

"We weren't expecting an event where towards the last seven hours of its flight, an aircraft was not being tracked by any of the conventional technologies -- it's unprecedented," Dolan said.

"We had to contemplate the possibility (that search efforts would last 12 months). The only thing that was comparable was Air France flight 447 i
