Families of MH370 passengers seek whistleblower, offer $5m reward: The Independent

The families of those on board the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 have launched a campaign calling for a “whistleblower” to come forward and reveal how the plane has lost, offering a reward of up to $5 million.

They plan to raise the money via the crowdfunding website Indiegogo, and hope that a large enough sum will entice a military insider or aviation expert to expose what many relatives believe to be a cover-up.

Since the Boeing 777 went missing on 8 March with 239 people on board, investigators have failed to find a single piece of wreckage and the search zone still spans up to 60,000 square km 24,000 square miles. Sarah Bajc, the partner of missing American passenger Philip Wood, told Sky News that she was “certain there has been a cover-up”.
