The search for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 has been suspended after nearly three years of fruitless work.
The airplane vanished from radar on March 8, 2014, with 239 people on board. Since then, nothing has been seen of the plane except for pieces of debris that floated far from the original focus.
International search crews have examined more than 45,000 square miles of the Indian Ocean, where experts initially concluded the plane was most likely to be located, to no avail.
The search was suspended Tuesday, NPR's Anthony Kuhn reports.
