So, after 1046 days, the search for MH370 has basically ended. A final 440 page Australian report has been released, which I'm sure fully covers every single place that the plane was not found. Obviously, the Malaysian government has not given up, but its activity is now limited to scrutinizing satellite photos.
If this works like losing things at home, the wreckage will probably suddenly appear once the last person has stopped looking. Gremlins are like that.
