Sydney - A continuing failure to find debris from the missing Malaysia Airlines jet in a prospective patch of the Indian Ocean would prompt searchers to rethink their strategy, Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said Wednesday.

The plane vanished an hour into a night flight March 8 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board, mostly Chinese nationals, and no trace has been found since. The hunt for wreckage from flight MH370 is likely already the most expensive in aviation history but Abbott said there would be nolet-up in the international effort.

"Australia won't rest until we've done everything we humanly can to get to the bottom of this mystery," the prime minister told reporters in Canberra.//Deutsche Presse Agentur
