Full coverage: Malaysia Airlines Plane Bound for Beijing Goes Missing

Malaysia's Department of Civil Aviation is now holding a press conference on the latest search effort of the missing Malaysia Airline MH370. Let's cross live now to the conference site.

The flight disappeared after taking off from Kuala Lumpur on March 8th en-route to Beijing with 239 people on board. Months of searches have failed to turn up any trace of the missing Boeing 777 aircraft.

Malaysia's Deputy Transport Minister Aziz Kaprawi said on Wednesday that an interim report on the investigation into the plane's disappearance will be released on March 7th.

This is to abide by a requirement from the International Civil Aviation Organization for Malaysia to release an interim report on the anniversary of the incident. The findings of an international investigation team set up in April 2014 will also be included in the report.

The international team consists of the US National Transport Safety Board, Britain's Air Accidents Investigation Branch, China's Aircraft Accident Investigation Department, France's Land Transport Accident Investigation Bureau, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau, aircraft manufacturer Boeing and British satellite communications company Inmarsat.

The airline's troubles worsened on July 17th when another jet, Flight MH17, was shot down over Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board. Ending a bad year for Southeast Asian carriers, an AirAsia flight from Indonesia's second-biggest city of Surabaya to Singapore crashed in December, killing all 162 people on board.
