Families attempt to raise $5m reward for missing jetBy AP News Jun 10, 2014 10:51AM UTC
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Relatives of five people on board the missing Malaysian jetliner are trying to crowd source a $5 million reward for information about what happened to the plane.
The group has started a campaign on the fundraising website Indiegogo.
Just under 24 hours after it launched, the campaign had raised just over $5,000.
The group says it “wants to provide a substantial incentive for anyone who knows the truth to come forward.”
The Boeing 777 disappeared on March 8 flying from Malaysia to China.
A team of experts says satellite transmissions from the plane show the flight ended somewhere in a large patch of the southern Indian Ocean. Searchers have found nothing there, leading to continuing speculation over its fate.
