As families of the passengers on board the fated Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 continued to scour Madagascar Monday for wreckage from the missing plane, they floated a new incentive in hopes of extending the search. Now, if someone finds debris from the Boeing 777 that disappeared two years ago, they could get a monetary reward.

"The more debris we find, the easier it will be to find where the crash happened," Ghislain Wattrelos, who lost three relatives in the crash, told the Associated Press.

The flight, also known as MH370, was traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014 when it mysteriously vanished. The plane is thought to have crashed, and all 239 people on board are presumed to have perished — but locating a precise area where the aircraft went down has proven difficult. A thorough search of the Indian Ocean has turned up few results, and investigators have said they'll suspend the hunt soon unless someone uncovers new evidence.

The reward proposal was part of the MH370 families' push to prolong the operation, according to the AP. So was their trip to Madagascar, which was scheduled to last until Dec. 11, according to a news release.

"All debris collected to date have been found off the east coast of Africa by the public," Voice370, a group of the next-of-kin, wrote in the release. "Despite these hugely important finds, there has been no systematic, organized search by any responsible party. This leaves [us] no other choice except to take it upon ourselves to do something to find answers and closure."

While some families were fighting to locate debris in Madagascar, others were fighting in court. Lawyers for the relatives of two Australian couples who died on MH370 were expected to face off against Malaysia Airlines in Sydney Friday over a notice that would force the company to turn over documents relating to the doomed flight, the Courier Mail reported exclusively.

The attorneys hoped to procure training records, security information and the insurance contract, but the airline rejected the request on the grounds that it was irrelevant to the lawsuit, which blames Malaysia Airlines for the disaster.
