Search for Flight 370 black box continues

INDIAN OCEAN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The clock is ticking for searchers looking for the missing Malaysian aircraft.

Malaysia's Prime Minister says more satellite analysis shows the plane crashed in the southern Indian Ocean, with no survivors.

However, Chinese authorities don't believe it and the relatives of the passengers on Flight 370 are demanding more answers.

They're trying to find the black boxes on the plane to explain how and why it went down, but they only emit signals for 30 and possible 45 days after a crash.

Bad weather has halted search efforts, but when they resume searchers do have an area they believe could be the plane's last position.

"Let's be clear to this point and time we have not successfully collected or identified any debris from the aircraft in question," said Australian Defense Minister David Johnston.

"We're not searching for a needle in a haystack. We are still searching for the haystack," said Australian Air Marshall Speaker Mark Binskin.

Malaysia Airlines is offering family member five thousand dollars for each passenger aboard the flight.

Australia is waiving visa fees for members who want to come mourn.
