KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Malaysia said on Tuesday it has received proposals from three companies offering to continue the search for Malaysian Airlines flight MH370, which has been missing since 2014, but no decision has been made yet. Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong said proposals were received from U.S.-based seabed exploration firm Ocean Infinity, Dutch firm Fugro and an unidentified Malaysian company. “We wont be deciding anything now on whether we are embarking on a new search or not,” Liow told reporters on the sidelines of an event in Kuala Lumpur. MH370 vanished three years ago somewhere in the southern Indian ocean en route to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur with 239 people aboard.
